Soviet-era regional museum with tired exhibits
Sep 2018 • Friends
The Khorog Regional Museum is in a Soviet-era theater building near Lenin Street and is the largest museum in the Gorno Badakshan region. The first floor contains theater, actor and performance memorabilia (which unfortunately was not familiar to me). Mounting the stairs to to the second floor, I was confronted with Soviet era flags, pamphlets, numerous photographs of local and national leaders and writers (I did recognize Stalin). A regional map showed mountain ranges and rivers of the region. A large room had collection of stuffed animals, mineral samples, traditional wedding costumes, pottery, and furniture. Unfortunately, exhibits appeared in natural light from the windows, as there was an electrical problem. Two items of note were a carved cradle and the first piano to arrive in the region carried by two soldiers over the mountains from Osh in 1913. Labels were all in Cyrillic, but a guide who spoke excellent English informed us about the exhibits. The museum is open from 8 am to noon, and 1-4:30 pm Mondays through Fridays. Admission is 10 somoni for foreigners. There is a public toilet (free) in a separate building in the museum courtyard. The Pamirs Welcome Center is a short walk away in the adjacent City Park. Cafes, restaurants, and the Khorog bazaar are nearby on Lenin Street.

Passing through Khorog last August as part of our drive around the ‘stans we had a look at the Khorog Regional Museum. It is a unique collection of artifacts from the area and about the history as well which is kind of neat. Lots of well cared for exhibits about what you can find around Khorog and easy to understand as well. Worth a visit.

Sometimes bizarre but mostly rich with artifacts of a different time

This museum is a bit difficult to find, and it has moved a couple of times, which makes asking around quite difficult. Once you get in, there is a short hallway with some famous portraits and photographs, and then a medium sized room with rows and rows of artifacts. There are also several disturbing stuffed animals that don't seem to have their eyes on right, which can be pretty unnerving (I loved it). My favorites to see were the old playbills and books in glass cases and the traditional pamiri style rug woven with a portrait of Lenin in the center. I recommend this if you have about an hour to spare in Khorog and you want to see some history blended with some strangeness.

It's dark, badly curated, no English and even though cheap isn't worth your time. The one thing that is interesting is the stuffed Marco Polo sheep which shows how big they are.

Interesting displays, but poorly maintained
Jul 2015 • Solo
If you pass through Khorog, it is worth spending one hour in this museum. Unfortunately, it needs a serious renovation, and it is poorly maintained (although 3 or 4 members of staff were sitting idle in the lobby). Everything is in Russian only.
