  • More like a site museum. The signs and explanations in the museum is not so friendly for foreigners. It will need some modificatios.
  • By far the best museum I went to in Uzbekistan - partly because we paid extra for a guided tour offered in the museum (English guide) and she was absolutely superb. In addition, the staff are clearly passionate about what they are doing, while the museum is clearly evolving all the time, illustrating the care and interest the curators have as they are keeping the exhibits fresh and up-to-date with the latest theories about this site. A must visit in Samarkand.
