  • It’s quite hard to categorise this place. I don’t know whether to call it a museum or a propaganda palace. Its aim is to showcase the two centuries beginning in the late 1300s when a guy called Temur ...  more »
  • Well, let's say," why not! The museum was built in the 1990s by a desire to honor a national symbol that is Tamerlane. The building is interesting and the lobby with the frescoes on the wall and the mosaic ceiling is impressive. After that there is nothing very interesting: copies of objects that are found in museums around the world and many paintings (often pretty and well done), but this is not a highlight of the city. Let's say if you have time why not do it.

  • 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.
  • I visited this place a year ago. Its Its kept very nicely & should been seen by all visitors. The guide was also very knowledgeable. Overall an excellent experience.
