I enjoyed a couple of hours here looking at the displays over 2 floors. Impressive building with good aircon and seating dotted through the galleries. Good value. Staff were helpful. You need to check your bag in on arrival. Recommended.

I think this museum, while not overly exceptional, does showcase Tajiki history quite well. I enjoyed seeing the exhibits of Tajikistan's history, and it was right on the grounds of Rudaki Park, which was convenient for me.

Brand-new building with a big flag post next to it. Entry is cheap and that is good. Because there is nothing special to see. There was a fake Buddha statue that was made of carton box's. Luckily air-con was working. Toilet was really dirty.

The museum spreads over several levels and has displays from early regional history through the centuries up to now. It also gives insights into various aspects of Tajik culture. There are also painting galleries and displays of regional fauna

Get an English speaking guide or it's not really worth it. This is a very good museum located on two floors. However, the displays have minimal explanations. We had an excellent English speaking guide who gave us a tour of about 1 hour. The museum...More

This unassuming museum has a lot of real stuff excavated at the different archeological sites around the country. Some of the highlights include the reclining Buddha and the skeleton of a princess from 5000 years ago. Of course the museum needs a lot of upgrades...More

As we understand it, there are more “originals” of the archeological finds here than in the other Museum. So really swell Alexander the Great era items. The reclining Buddha is put back together reasonably well ( but the ones in Burma and Thailand are longer)....More
