Bagan Archaeological Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • A must visit to get an idea of the history of Bagan. Well arranged and graphically explained, it is the place to start the visit of Bagan from. The different statues of Buddha in various Mudras , the multitude of stories that reveal a glorious past, the imposing painting of the temples------ all are necessary to be imbibed first to understand the ancient culture of Bagan

  • Pretty modern compared to rhe rest of the city. Good to hit the museum first to get a layout of the area

  • Humble but highly informative. It's a massive building but don't be intimidated. The exhibits inside are simple but full of useful information. If possible, visit here before touring the many temples in Bagan. Unless you are a historian specializing in the Bagan Period and other Southeast Asian cultures, you'll learn a lot of useful information about crosscurrents, architectural approaches, history, religious beliefs resulting in various depictions of the Buddha and more. I wish I had realized how I could have developed a sharper appreciation for /understanding of what I was seeing the previous day! Allow 1-2 hours. Almost every caption and sign provides English translations.

  • It is a perfect place, that you can see old Myanmar traditional.

  • This place looks nice from the outside but is kinda boring on the inside. You're not allowed to bring your bags or camera inside ( since most pieces are just laying there without any protection) but everyone is making photo's with their phones so the no camera rule makes no sense. After 30min I was outside already, yes it was that boring... so don't waste any money there and just enjoy all the temples and pagoda's
