Documenting the history and heritage of the 200-year-old empire, which stretched from the Mediterranean to India and China, the three-story museum features a collection of ornate men's and women's robes, astronomical and musical instruments, coins, and ceramics. Check out imperial robes, scaled models of Samarkand's historic landmarks, and illuminated books. The center of the main hall features a copy of Osman's Qur'an and a gallery displays Timur portraits by contemporary artists.

A gorgeous museum to an incredible part of world history. Certainly a must see when in Tashkent!! We were lucky enough to receive special attention and touring from one of the delightful staff managers, THANK YOU!
We've been here before making a trip to Samarkand where Amir Temur started his empire. So we had a great base before seeing all the places in Samarkand in person which are connected to Amir Temur and his empire. There's always a "tourist fee" you have to pay on top, but over all it's really worth it and not expensive.
