National Museum of Tajikistan Reviews
The National Museum of Tajikistan is literally the best museum in town. The building itself is incredible as the pillars look like the pillars of the Persepolis in Iran. The museum is in three floors.... more »
Really beautiful and gorgeous place. Very informative and interesting place. Near the city centre. With love from Pakistan. more »
In the northwest corner of the Flagpole Park is the striking building of the National Museum of Tajikistan. The modern and spacious interior contains three main subjects: nature, history and art. Due to the spacious layout of the museum, everything can be viewed well and the exhibited artifacts come into their own. The sections on Antiquity and the Middle Ages are, in my opinion, one of the highlights of the museum. Perhaps the most remarkable section of the museum is the exhibition of gifts from visiting heads of state and head of government to the president of Tajikistan.
One of the more interesting museums in town. Entrance is 25 somoni for foreigners.
