This museums covers a lot of different art mediums. Woodcarvings, textiles, ceramics, painting. There is too much to see in one visit. Very reasonably priced, 10,000 for foreigners, is worth the money.

Few people seemed to be visiting, inside was warm and got hotter as you went up levels. Only 2 or 3 A/C units working on the upper level. Mostly paintings, nothing significant, some fragments of Buddhist and other artifacts.

We were delighted to locate an English-speaking guide in the museum who helped us understand so many of the vibrant artistic traditions of Uzbekistan -- intricately carved woodwork, metalwork, carved plaster and stucco, ceramic tile work, and exquisite textiles. The ground floor displays focus on...More
