Every time I visit this place, I feel a mixture of ecstasy and happiness. Despite it is not huge in its collection, it combines the number of exhibits with their overall attractiveness.

A newly built museum where you can learn a lot about the moslim scientists of the early ages who discovered lots of things like astronomy and horoscopes as well as geometry and medicine. You can see a copy of the first QURAN of the 7th century! Really amazing!

All of the pieces are replicas. All of the genuine pieces are in museums in Europe or America. However a few cool pieces. Personally I liked the few pieces of artwork of Amir Timur The center some was pretty neat

On a walking itinerary of Tashkent make sure you include this museum. It's near numerous other attractions and easily accessible. Tamerlane is core to the Uzbek national identity and no trip to the country could be complete without visiting this museum dedicated to him.

If this is the only museum you visit in Tashkent, you made the right decision. Timur aka Tamerlane is one of histories greatest conquerors and leaders. There are tons of interesting items on display. I wish more explanations were in English though, but you get the gist. Your student ID will get you a discount here.
