  • The exposition was not outstanding. Modern paintings, replicas of ancient constructions, costumes. But design and building from within. Here come the newlyweds to be photographed. The Palace environment corresponding to Entourage. Exhibits can only be photographed for a fee. Probably with a guide would be disclosed to the Timurids theme better.

  • 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.
  • A very whitewashed view of a historical figure but very neatly presented nonetheless, in a vast and spacious museum building.
  • 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.
  • Have a nice look at the architecture !
  • Amazing place, atmosphere surrounds you as soon as u entered.

Where to stay in Tashkent

Tashkent has a range of accommodations, with many good hotels empty during off-season from December through February. Most of the hotels lie scattered around the downtown area, stretching from southwest to northeast, with luxurious ones grouping on the northwest side. Book ahead during the peak months to make sure you get the place you want. A variety of backpackers' lodgings lie around the city's Chorsu bazaar.
