This is a quirky old museum that has lots of treasures on 6 floors of artifacts. Alot of it is different and very relevant to the local Burmese culture and traditions. However it is spread out over lots of floors and sections and your could take a day to see the lot if your were interested.

A good museum and a must go for people interested in history. The artifacts are presented well with good inscriptions.Gives a decent glimpse into the history of Myanmar. could have been laid out better with gradual progress of the evolution of history. The entry fees is 5000 MMK for foreigners and 1000 MMK for locals. Decently air conditioned museum. Will require almost 3-4 hours for a casual visitor.

Since 1st February, Military troops were being deployed to hospitals and other public building in cities and towns around Myanmar on Sunday, in the latest move by the ruling junta to consolidate control in the face on ongoing popular resistance. Security forces carried out a violent crackdown on demonstrations in all cities in Myanmar using sound grenades and tear gas against protesters while also carrying out mass arrests.

A must-see for the amazing, tall, gilded throne, as well as for the entire floor showcasing the various costumes worn by all the different ethnic groups in Myanmar. There are also some of the jewelry and objects used by royalty, mostly adorned with rubies. There are many other things to see as well. The gift shops across the parking lot are worth a visit as well. I would say it would take at least a couple of hours, if not more. It's a good way to spend an afternoon and experience a lot of Burmese art and culture that you would not otherwise get to see. Suitable for individuals as well as families.

I am a Museum junkie, and the National Museum did not disappoint. Myanmar has a long rich history, and the exhibits accurately reflect the historical beauty of this amazing country. I was there for several hours, and could have stayed several days enjoying the exhibits. This place is a must see if you have 3-4 days to explore Yangon.

Was surprised by the sheer amount of artifacts in this museum. Having lived and traveled around SEA for the past 5 years, I’ve got used to the national museum having hardly anything in it. But there were 5 floors here with some really cool things.

OK it’s not the British Museum or Louvre, but it’s probably the best museum in south east Asia in my opinion, and that wasn’t something I was expecting.

Well worth a visit especially if you want to understand the history of Myanmar beyond it being an ex British colony with a lot of pagodas

One would hope that the National Museum would be excellent and some elements are but there is also quite a bit of padding , I doubt many visitors will find the top floors gripping.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this modern, and very informative museum. There are 4 floors packed with many interesting exhibits; a lot of the local costumes of the various Myanmese tribes, fine art, and much more. We spent 3 hours there quite happily.

Museum is located in 5 floors building. You can spend long time learning about language, natural history, royal artifacts, arts and national race groups. Too much for one visit. To better understanding I would recommend a visit with a guide.
