Given the limited resources this museum works hard to tell the story of the ancient kingdom and uses what it has imaginatively. The (human) guide was very informative. At first she seemed to set off by autopilot on a set description of the displays one...More

A humble collection of Timurid history. The building is centrally located and can be accessed easily. No tickets required here. The building is new and displays the family tree of the Timurid dynasty.

We loved the Amir Timur Museum. As you come up the stairs the view of the dome and other ornamentations are breath taking. The displays are well done - enough to be informative but not boring. Well worth a visit

This real ethnic museum is a nice peine of local proud. The famous Tamerlan, Timur, is a national hero, and you will enjoy its interior. It is not so big, so 30 minutes will be enough to see it.

This is a beautiful museum which houses some of the oldest manuscripts and Quran of Khaliph Osman ( AS) as well as artifacts. It is a very impressive building in itself with a classic blue dome that cannot be missed. Worth a visit.

The iconic modern architecture of this museum, built in 1996, appears on the 1000 Som note; it is a museum that highlights the historical significance of Timur (Tamerlane), who is significant not only to the history of Uzbekistan, but whose empire extended into Anatolia (Turkey),...More

Hi there Thank you for your question. The Amir Timur museum does not open until 10:00am. It closes at around 17:00hrs. I believe it is not open to the public on a Monday.
