The new and well designed museum is located in the nicely renovated fortress. It gives a good overview over the history of the region, beginning with Alexander the Great and ending with the independence of Tajikistan. I recommend this museum to all visitors of Khujand.

This was a very nice museum. My favorite part was the Alexander the Great Wall which was very nicely done. There was alot of history in the museum and I found it very interesting to hear about the history from our guide.

The museum is interesting and you get to learn quite a bit about Khujand. Do get a guide to get some decent insights. The gift shop is managed by an artist that sells some amazing handmade souvenirs

An English speaking guide came in specially on her day off to show us round. Not the largest museum we went round, but worth a look
