U Thant House Yangon (Rangoon)
This comparatively small museum tells a poignant story of a great man who, from humble beginnings in rural Myanmar, went on to influence world history as Secretary General of the United Nations.
This museum/house is very simply but very tastefully done and pays proper tribute to a man who made a major contribution to the world through his work in many ways but particularly through the UN as Secretary Gene...
Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue Yangon (Rangoon)
Once home to a thriving orthodox community of several thousand it is now down to 20 souls who keep it open as a museum and to the memorialize its place in history.
Bogyoke Aung San Museum Yangon (Rangoon)
For me who loved folk art and museums of homes and lives of people long ago, it was of particular interest as it was about how some people lived here.
The Bogyoke Aung San Museum is where Aung San lived with his family from May 1945 until his assassination on July 19, 1947.

National Museum Yangon (Rangoon)
Considering the prices some museums in SEA charge, the National Museum in Yangon is definitely the cheapest I've been to for what it offers - perfectly preserved and impressive artefacts from all types of eras + a...
This museum reminded us of some of the Eastern European museums.Very cheap to enter and an experience in itself.Not recommended for thrill seekers!

Myanmar Gems Museum Yangon (Rangoon)
The newer Gem Trade Centre (with higher prices and sometimes better quality) and the older Gem Museum (more bargains if you know what you're looking for and have a good eye).
We had an excellent English speaking museum guide who did an excellent job walking us through the exhibits.
Amazing museum just as amazing as the temples around Bagan.
This museum has items kept safe robbers so you may find acient Buddas and inscriptions on rocks dating back centuries ago.
One of the best museums I have visited in Asia.
We then hired a taxi driver to take us around the outside areas of the museum - and you will need one - as this is the best part.
The Gem Museum Naypyidaw
Firstly to visit the Gem Museum to see the history of Gems in Burma, then to visit the gem and jade stalls on the lower floors to purchase the gems at your leisure.
Naypyidaw's spanking new, Texas-size version of Yangon's gem museum follows a similar formula: upstairs, you pass through vault doors of jade into the "museum" , which displays trophy examples of Myanmar's preciou...
The site itself is large and has few maps so the museum is invaluable to put the site in your minds eye while out exploring.
Great museum to see the about the culture and the history of the country
Anyone visiting the Capital of Myanmar, Nay Pyi Taw should experience a visit to this wonderful National Museum.
The museum is big and modern, but unfortunately a few exhibition areas were inaccessible.
Trish Gallery Yangon (Rangoon)
A little gem of a museum!

Drug Elimination Museum Yangon (Rangoon)
You will leave with an appreciation for the effort that goes into making a truly bad museum, and it will provide a lifetime of laughs for you and the friends who go with you.
We were the only visitors during our visit, an employee walked ahead of us and turned on the lights in each section of this huge museum as we entered The dioramas are stupendous: expensive and horrifying displays...
This great restaurant, gift shop and small museum is in a beautiful restored trading company warehouse built on the bank of the Irrawaddy River in 1906.
The house has been restored and offers a small museum area and a shop selling quality local crafts.
This is one and only museum(it used to be a Palace of the Sawbwar of Shan) through out the country.
Nothing big or fancy, but a really authentic and nice small museum
We visited the Cultural Museum in Mandalay and it was excellent.
What I enjoyed about this museum was the precise details to each display without having to wade through lengthy descriptions.
After spending the night in Mawlamyine its another 90 mins drive to the Death Railway museum and the nearby war graves, but don't miss out either one.
