If you read Russian or Uzbek you may get more out of a visit as English descriptions are limited or non existent. Not the best organization of displays.

I rarely visit museums. I am getting bored quite quickly with the unknown faces and facts. I have spent an hour in this museum. I liked part of its display. Unfortunately the top floor was closed.

The history museum is worth the visit, first for the building with a magnificent dome, and second to know something of the history of the country, that enjoyed a great period some 700 - 800 years ago. Allow 1 hour, not more than two to...More
