There are other items which the UNESCO International organization has awarded the status of a nominee for the World Heritage Monument. Excursion for 2 hours. The Guide can be taken on site.
The biggest Buddha statue found in the Central and Western Asia. Recommended for those interested in history and archeology as well as for scholchildren. more »
Ticket price is 25 Somoni for tourists 5 Somoni for locals. Museum consists of several halls. It is not reach in terms of historical staff. May be the most valuable part of the museum is the last floor where paintings are located. In general it is worth visiting to get more information about Tajikistan's history, geography and culture but don't expect to see great things here.
It is an exciting museum! A lot of history can be seen there. Definitely suggest to go
