State Museum Of History Of Uzbekistan Reviews & Ratings
One floor is dedicated to pre-history through until the end of communism. It is OK but a little dry. Not enough interesting exhibits and too much reading text. The other floor is dedicated to the current period since Uzbek independence. The propaganda here is too emphasised and detracts from the historical information.
You can't take photos. That's a pity. Otherwise a fascinating find.
Workers are not that much kind. Why foreigners should pay 5 times more than local? Should we pay more to see local history? Make no sence at all.
A must visit. This museum has some important pieces and an informed guide.
The museum takes a more scientific approach to telling Uzbekistan history. No air conditioning.
