  • 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.
