    This museum, which doesn't look deserves a thorough visit. Through the portal is that profusion of ceramics, walls painted with great delicacy. The ceilings are beautiful colors. You can see typical clothing, hoods, jewelry from the four corners of Uzbekistan. It is a Museum must-see before visiting more before the country. The price of entry in soum, currency of the country is ridiculous. A euro is worth 10 000 soum.
