Like many buildings in Dushanbe, also this museum is more from the outside than from the inside. Still, the exhibitions are good. The thing is, if you come here late, some of the staff seem to be more eager to close the place than to...More

Exposition ranging from large archeological sections to cultural heritage and flora & fauna make this a nice way to get more familiar with Tajikistan. However, museum is rather large (4 floors) and explanations / details in English are often absent or very staccato.

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

A very good museum to see the blends of culture of the silk road. I spent a little over an hour there, going fast without any extensive reading. Do not miss: - the Oxus “treasure”: beautiful gold artefacts showing the blend of hellenistic and other...More

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
