  • The Museum's collection contains unique finds, such as the surviving artifact "Tsarina Sarazma", which was found near the town of Penjikent and the twelve-meter figure of the Buddha, found by archaeologists in 1961 in the village of Ajina-Tepe in southern Tajikistan, Khatlon Oblast, near the city of Kurgan-Tyube. 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.

  • 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
