  • Beautiful museum but only evident on the inside. The place also hard to locate as road signage not prominent. A lot of details confronting us when we stepped in. There are also a lot of exhibits displayed with more respect. It would b easier to take Yandex taxi to get there.
  • It was a beautiful small museum - they charge 25,000 soms to get in for some reason - no different price for Uzbek citizens. I went during a slow hour to see everything without it being crowded. What was the downside? Every employee in each room was following me around - it was so uncomfortable I felt like I was being rushed. When I wanted to go back one more time to the first room they told me no I have to exit - what the hell is up with that? I pay that much to go in and can’t look in peace? I felt like I was being treated as a shoplifter
