  • A bit tricky to find; however, worth the effort. In a lovely leafy street, which itself it very pretty. Displays are very beautiful bursting with colour.  more »
  • The Museum building itself is an architectural monument, and the place where the Museum is located in the center of Tashkent OASIS. The exposition is not old, but interesting, and visit the Museum stands. It's mostly carpets, fabrics, clothing, and, generally, the other subjects of Arts and crafts.

  • the Museum is well preserved and the presentations of the various arts of the country serves as fitting tribute to the many arts of the country, in my opinion deserves greater appreciation by extending both the exhibits that possibly the location ... anyway to see

  • Small museum that worth a visit. You can see carpet, jewellery and precious stuff. Max 1h and 30min to visit it. I've been there in Aug 2017 and cafeteria was closed.
  • Small museum of Uzbek art works in an old house. Has a small tourist shop and cafe in courtyard. Lovely woodworks, dresses, carpets, and tiled rooms
  • Really interesting, especially the suzanis and clothes collections. Well worth the visit to learn about the Uzbek artisanal craftsmanship. There is a camera fee.
  • You can't miss this place if you love traditional Uzbek Suzani/Adras. Great collections.
  • The outside looks amazing! However, it is closed until 10th August 2016
