If you are spending two or three days in Yangon,after a series of visit to Shwe Da Gone pagoda, a train ride and maybe yangon walking tour, another place you can pay a visit is Nation Museum where you can learn not only Myanmar history,...More
Large collections over 5 floors. Well themed halls, did not get an audio guide as it only had 30 items and did not get a human guide as like to look in peace. A much better collection than Bagan, not surprisingly. Halls dimly lit with...More
If you go to the big temple and are a fan of history and culture you don’t want to miss this musuem. They have many artifacts and also cover the wide diversity of the countries different cultures. Definitely worth a visit

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.
