There are primarily 2 floors. the bottom floor is a routine "through the ages" history of the area from prehistoric times until near to the present. there are exhibits, but nothing to really grab you. the top floor is pretty much just a bunch of story boards saqying how great is the recent political establishment. Pretty boring propaganda on the... More

A fascinating attraction on two levels. One floor is properly a museum, featuring a sweep of central Asian history from the Sogdians to the Soviets.The other is less a museum than a showcase of Uzbekistan present and future - the "clean, modern, orderly, prosperous" nation envisaged by the late President Karimov and his successors. It covers, agriculture, industry, politics, sport... More

Worth visiting to help you string together all the history you've seen so far in the country. The top floor is quite a mishmash of Uzbek pride in their modern accomplishments, what few there are. Skip it if you are short on time.

Good museum, from the Stone Age until today. Shame as one floor was not open when we visited - and like everywhere else in Uzbekistan had to pay 25,000 Som (crazy!) to take photos. I would visit as gives an idea of the history of the country but be prepared to get annoyed about the lack of translations in English... More

This smallish but excellent museum is located in a modern building that was once called the Lenin Centre, I believe. It's located near the centre of the city close to many other attracrions including the Navoi Theatre. It is in an area with lots of parks with big shady trees and water features. There are lots of eateries within a... More

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 visit. A wide park close by offers relaxing walking. Not many restaurants and other amenities... More

I visited this museum on my last day in the country. Located next to Mustaqilik maydoni in a fairly impressive building, I jockeyed for entrance with group of school children when buying my ticket (30,000 som, including camera use) and throughout my visit. The museum has several floors but only one was accessible during my visit. After ascending the stairs... More

Well organised museum with wide information about the history of Uzbeklistan and neighbouring countries. Though rather little information in English.
