There is little critical information about the history of the building, but the main hall is of breathtaking beauty. This is one of the places where it is well worth to pay the fee to take pictures (it is anyway only about 1 Euro).

The setting for this museum is the house of an 19th Century Russian official. The building is impressive in and of itself. It houses excellent examples of Uzbek crafts: textiles, carpets, jewelry, etc. There is an extra charge for a photo permit (10000 som)

The place shows a bit of the best that Uzbekistan has to offer: gorgeous carpets, beautiful pottery, traditional dresses and jewelry and all of that in a splendid vila, with a beautiful architecture and nicely decorated rooms. For sure it’s worth seeing it!
