Although this is also a museum, it mainly highlights the gorgeous artistically done house of a high Russian official who built this masterpiece from funds embezzled from the Czar. He lived high, until he was caught and executed. Very much worth seeing.

This is a converted town house which maintains the magnificent tile, plaster and painted surfaces of the era. The “stalactite” ceilings and columns were elegant (see photos). The carpets, embroidery and other applied arts are well chose, exhibited and labeled. Certainly worth a visit.

Great ornate exterior and even more ornate interior. Beautiful pieces of decorated furniture. Great Wall hangings and Carpets throughout. Beautiful embroidered fabrics. Lovely items of colourful clothing. Ceramics, glass as well as silver and brass artifacts. This is a special place. Worth seeking out.

This is a small museum with excellent examples of the local craft, including ceramic, embroidery and timber work. There are a couple of shops selling a good range of souvenirs.

The small but representative artifacts collection is very representative of the Central Asia art and taste. The suzanis are beautiful.
