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

An amazing piece of architecture as well as containing some magnificent pieces of Tajik history and culture. At the time of writing (March 2018) it cost 25 Somoni (TJS) equivalent to £2 entry and an extra 10 TJS (80p) to be allowed to use cameras....More

Spent probably four hours there on Saturday. The lying Budda shown in the photo is most impressive even if it is a duplicate of the original which is supposedly in Samarkan. We hired a guide who was knowledgable and gave a really nice tour in...More

A huge space inside filled with almost nothing of interest. Some signs are in English but I gave up on the ground floor. Not of any interest to the foreign visitor unless you are happy to spend your time looking at anything put on display.

The National Museum is a must see if you have the time. There's a replica of the 90 foot reclining Buddha, found in southern Tajikistan, but to see the real one you must visit the old museum. The price of entry is quite reasonable.

Disappointing visit. Yes , plenty of interest but felt it could have been laid out better. Was in a small group and unfortunately our museum guide spoke softly and her command of English was not that good . The reclining buds was also a disappointment....More
