  • A beautiful from the outside, modern construction. One enters the room with the big dome, one immediately catches the huge chandelier in the eye. The museum itself is informative. You will find much of the time of the Timurids also models of the most important buildings from this period, an overview of the Empire of Amir Temur and the entire Silk Road history. If you are interested in the history of Timur and learn more about wishing the Museum is a must-attend event. Not is unfortunately on all tours, but easily you can explore it on your own.

  • 铁木尔博物馆面积不大,主要是地下和地上两部分,内容比较少,请了中文翻译介绍,相关历史才有了些了解。希望越办越好。  more »
  • A small pleasant Museum. Inexpensive entrance (4000 sum, it seems) and inexpensive same guide-3000 soums (recommend to take).

  • Beautiful place. Has extra fees for filming. Has many portraits about the Timur times, and artifacts from the past. Felt longer than the historical museum of uzbek, since the size is whole bigger.
  • An architectural beauty. Very beautiful inside. Excellent place to know about Amir Timur and history of Uzbekistan.
  • A beautiful Museum. Exterior decoration is impressive. A lot of the exhibits. In the Centre of the Hall there is a chic chandelier. If you are a lover of history, then you definitely need to go there

  • Outside wondering inside places interesting;) Impressed with the inside dome and the Central Hall. There were a few interesting exhibits ... really ancient and handmade. The rest of contemporary crafts and paintings.
