    A reasonably new building with beautiful decorated displays and models of the important landmarks from historical times, especially related to Amir Timur. Nice paintings too. Several of the items on display are copies, with originals located in other museums around the world. Worth a look.

    Very beautiful building inside and outside. This is an excellent place to learn about Amir Timur and the Uzbekistan history. There is an extra charge for taking pictures inside and it is well controlled in all areas.

    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.
