I heard that this museum used to be Lenin museum during Soviet time. Now, it is a museum of history. Its remarkable appearance is with nearby TV station a good objective of photo shot. On the first floor is dedicated to ancient history. The second...More
This must be one of the best museums I have been to for sometime, in that it gave a very good history display of Uzbekistan. Only pitty the aircon was not working the best, and so it was very warm in the building.
The first flaws were just a repeat of many of the things I have already seen in Buhara, Samarkand and Khiva, however if you are heading from Tashkent in that direction then it becomes a very nice introduction.
I found the second floor more interesting....More
The State Museum of History in Uzbekistan was a decidedly lacking museum visit for us when we were there in August 2017. It is a small showcase of the history of Uzbekistan as the title would acknowledge but it was a bit underwhelming even with...More
This was part of out city tour and I must say on the following day we visited other museums and galleries that where much more interesting. Yes we are all different and have our likes and dislikes. This one is not high on my likes...More
Ground floor has some interesting pieces dating back to prehistoric time. There are prehistoric tools, old small archeological finds, pottery items, gifts to the nation from various countries. First floor is mostly photographic record of modern/ recent history of Uzbekistan. Quite frankly interesting for historians...More
I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the museum.
There are many fantastic artefacts associated with the different eras of Uzbekistan’s colourful history.
There was s a small camera fee & this is worth paying.
Well curated and direct history of Uzbekistan from Paleolithic to present. English speaking guide cost $1 for all seven people. She spent about 1 1/2 hours with us, and covered history and the specific artifacts on display. Learned a lot.
Before the trip, heard good things about this museum. The museum consists of 3 floors. The real exhibitions are in 2nd and 3rd floors. 2nd floors are ancient Uzbek related artifacts. 3rd floor highlight history and progression of the Republic of Uzbekistan. Budget 1-1.5 hour.
Get a guided tour, cheaper than the entrance fee and good english speaker. She told us many stories and pointed out things we would have missed. Lots of beautiful objects with history, visited on last morning in Uzbekistan.
