A bit tricky to find; however, worth the effort. In a lovely leafy street, which itself it very pretty. Displays are very beautiful bursting with colour.

The museum offers a reasonable insight into the rich history of Uzbekistan. A must visit for history buffs. Its walking distance from the city centre.

Yes, lovely building and easy to wander round. Just 10,000 for 'citizens of far away countries' There is a display of art work and local tapestries but the detail in the building is the real highlight. Cafe only serves drinks
