This museum is in a large building, with the exhibits on the ground and first floors. It covers the history of the region from the stone age to the present day.

There were some beautiful creations from the Persians and Bactrian Greeks as well as Bhuddist sculptures that were so prevalent in the area before the rise of Islam.

There were sections on the massive contributions to science, medicine, architecture and culture that made this area critically important to world history. There was also a very large section showing how the country had improved since independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. This part was created by the Islam Karimov school of propaganda and was rather one sided!

It is the only no good experience we had in Tashkent.
It seam that nothing has happened with the exhibition the last 50 years.
The staff are unpolite and don’t want to help you.
They have raised the entrance fee for foreigners to 50000 and only one flor is open.
There are only limited information for non Russian and Uzbek talking visitors.
My advise: Use your time and money on some of the other things in Tashkent.

For a historical overview of the area of todays Uzbekistan there is no better place than this museum, centrally located in a quite attractive building from the 1970's Soviet times, when it was the Lenin Museum. Now it is a national museum with very patriotic Uzbek comments, also in English, from early man till today.

There are some interesting objects to be seen from the periods, when Zoroastrians, Alexander the Great, Buddhists, then Muslims were dominant in the area. Special attention is reserved for Amir Temur, a national hero, not much - as Tamerlane - liked elsewehere.

There had been over time several kingdoms, khanates, emirates on the teritory of todays Uzbekistan, which was only created as a unity in Soviet times. Of all periods there are some interesting object exhibited. The biggest patriotic show is to be found in the top floor about Uzbekistan since independence in 1991.

A nice museum with a good collection of artefacts related to different periods of history of Uzbekistan. Nothing spectacular, can be visited if you are in Tashkent.

The museum consists of three sections:
- first floor: exhibition of different artists
- second floor: from ancient times till independence, 1991
- during independence

The last floor is not so much interesting, because this is much more about propaganda.

However, there was exhibition of the painter in the first floor, which was very interesting.

On the second floor, the most of the exhibition about B.C and you can find few things about Middle Ages.

However, I recommend all who visits Uzbekistan to be in this museum, because you will travel to the past of the country.

PS. But do not expect a lot.

Comparing to other museums in Tashkent it is actually pretty good. As it is quite common in Uzbekistan there is very little in terms of explanations, brochures, or guide (in English) or shops. However, I think the coverage of ancient times is very good. There are several items on display and even if there are not many one can get of view of the history of Uzbekistan.
I visited only the first floor as I was not interested in the modern times, therefore I cannot comment on that one.
As in the previous cases it was possible to use the NazzAR app, which provided explanation to some exhibits.

Very poor museum, no explanations. Very bad curator work.
When I visited out of the 3 floors, 2 were closed! The lighting is also bad, making the experience even worse.

This museum is located in downtown Tashkent and gives a detailed overview of the history of Uzbekistan, from the ancient times to its modern status as a republic. The museum is in three floors, each focusing on a specific aspect of the Uzbekistan history and culture. If you're into this subject, you would find this museum very interesting.

This museum was worth visiting to get an overview of the history of the area. We found the historical phases exhibits more interesting than the soviet and post soviet era ones.
