If you have nothing else better to do as a foreign resident here then go and have a laugh. They charge you $3 and you get to see the propaganda set up by their beloved General Than Shwe, of course I used the word beloved...More

Not the best I’ve seen so far! Very lack information and not that great at all! For all the effort we made to get there, it doesn’t deserve. Only go if you really want to see it or have time! Otherwise skip it!

I had read about this place & decided to make the difficult journey to get there as I wanted to see it first hand. Luckily I heeded the advice not to pay for the camera fee (about 5 dollars I think) as there wasn't anything...More

For those familiar with the museausm of Vietnam, this museum fits that genre. Fascinating on a number of levels. Virtually empty on the day we visited (except for the staff, who will follow you from a respectful distance).

Disheartening to see that the drug problem is recognised, the size of it is well understand, a good strategy has been developed and substantial resources utilized - but losing worse than ever! There was clearly very good intent in creating and developing the Drug Elimination...More

This is very possibly the worst. Museum. On. Earth. But it's so bad that you've got to visit, if you have time; it's an absolute riot. It's not a stronghold of Myanmar's cultural history, but come to the museum to see how successful lower-level army...More

This museum is big - 3 floors of information on drug trade in the area. Sadly it's quite dusty, many of the exhibits have been removed or are broken, and the electricity/lighting is dim in many parts. But, the subject is interesting and there is...More

We were looking forward to going to the museum, but as we arrived it seems to have shut down for good as the gates were locked and the place was dilapidated :(
