    Beautiful but smaller museum
    A very well made Museum in the memory of Amir Temur who is an icon for Uzbekistan. Interior of the dome has spectacular decoration, corresponding to Timurid architecture. Artefacts are a few, but give a comprehensive idea about his rule. State Museum of art is quite big, with a lot of collection. Do visit if you have 1-2 days in Tashkent.

    Great With a Guided Tour
    Reading other people’s reviews before we visited I followed the advice to pay the extra for a guide. Money well spent. Our guide was awesome, spoke English very well and was both enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Uzbekistan’s rich history. We learned so much and came away with a new understanding of the country in the ~1 hour we spent with our guide. The museum doesn’t have a lot of descriptions next to the exhibits and a lot of items lack English labels. Without a guide you won’t get nearly as much out of your visit.

    A view of history
    The museum is nice, especially with a beautiful mural in the center under the dome. There is a ticket price, but it costs more for foreigners. The inside of the museum is 2 stories of artefacts and information. It's mostly in Uzbek and Russian, but there are some English explanations too.

We walked across the road from the park with Timur’s statue to the State Museum of the Timurids, a celebration of the achievements of the dynasty and what they did for Uzbekistan.

This is a pretty and new museum and is very well laid out, with lots of the information in English. The only confusing part for me were the maps of his campaigns as all the place names were in Cyrillic so didn’t mean much.

There were some amazing artefacts from the period and models of some buildings as well as a sculpture of Timur using his exhumed skull (by the Soviets in 1941) as a base. I was surprised to see his horoscope as I didn’t think astrology was Islamic?

Not really a museum, more a modern "glorification to Timur" . . . I guess every country needs a hero and Uzbekistan has made Timur theirs. Very little, if anything, of archeological value here ; some large paintings, mosaics and replica models in a bombastic interior. Funny, no camera photos allowed, but go your hardest with a phone-camera !

Some Interesting artifacts and a knowledgeable guide. If you use a camera you have to pay extra. If you have 45 minutes to spare worth visiting. Nothing to cry over if you don't have time to visit.

Almost missed it, entered it only because it was in the way. But then I was fascinated by the decorations and rich history. You can explore b yourself, but I recommend a guide or at least the nazzar app to get more information.
I wish the history of this part of the world was popularized more, there is a lot to explore.
Overall a good museum experience, plenty of information in English as well.

Great museum - a must visit.
Our guide around the museum was money well spent. Very informative and friendly. We got so much more from the visit due to his knowledge.

I was a bit disappointed as I expected more items on display from the Timurid period. It is basically very simple and there is not much information provided. Were it not for the NazzAR app I would not be able to get even the basics….
I assumed there would be more ceramics and paintings from the period, but there is very little of those. There are some items, which can be seen in other museums like in the Ulugbek one’s, but not much more beyond those…
