All reviews lion throne musical instruments throne room royal regalia myanmar history five floors audio guide worth a visit natural history mandalay palace ethnic groups arts and crafts ground floor pyay road few hours buddha images couple of hours
This place is much bigger than what I expected. To be honest I was a bit worn out after the first 2 floors and rushed through the rest. The audio tour is included as part of the fee but I can't say it was great....More
Our taxi driver had never heard of it, and we had a bit of struggle to arrive.
Enormous museum with some exceptional pieces, a bit diluted with less interesting items. Very few visitors.
The throne alone on the ground floor is worth the visit with...More
Two friends and myself spent a few hours in this Museum which had a guide right through the whole visit. The lady that we had was wonderful and knew the history of Myanmar. It was nice and cool in there and they have toilets on...More
We were really impressed with this museum as it has 4 large floors of exhibitions and we spent at least 3 hours taking in the history and culture of this wonderful country.
You cannot take your bags in or take photographs. They do not accept...More
Has a lot of ancient and historical items in there.It is one of the tourist attractions in Yangon. So, don't miss this opportunity when you visit to Myanmar.
As soon as you enter the museum, you will see the main exhibit Lion Throne which is...More
5000 Ks entry, with free audio guide and locker storage. Must-see if you're into archeology (fossils) and history (displays of bronze/iron weapons, stone engravings, replicas of ornaments). As a casual visitor, I got a bit saturated after strolling through the 4 stories in about 75...More
Went in Dec, 2018 during cooler weather. Exhibit rooms have room coolers, so are comfortable.
5 floors, including ground floor, with exhibits covering all facets of life, calligraphy, clothing, entertainment and royal wear and ornaments. The highlight of the museum is the Lion Throne on...More
I wanted to learn more on Myanmar's history and decided to visit this museum. I read several reviews at tripadvisor and I thought that it was going to be a short and although informative, not a very impressive museum. My impression was very different.
I’ve never encountered a national museum I didn’t like, even if I’ve taken a few of them with a grain of salt. The National Museum of Myanmar is certainly well worth spending a half day in, or more. Having said that, I don’t think it’s...More
Highly recommended for those who loves Myanmar history. The exhibition runs on all 5 floors of the building from the prehistory myanmar to the fall of king thibaw. I found plenty of interesting objets apart from the spectacular Lion throne on the ground floor, such...More

Sorry it's taken a couple of weeks to catch up on Trip Advisor - so probably far too late. No you can't take bags into the National Museum and although you can take in a mobile phone you can't use it everywhere - but can take pictures of the Lion Throne. As earlier answers indicate there are some free lockers you can leave your bags in - provided the museum is not overwhelmed by visitors. Taking my class on a trip they were told by the museum to leave their bags on the bus, while I was allowed to use a locker - but by that time the bus had left. 5,000 kyat foreigners entry fee for me - my students were free being nationals of Myanmar.
