Founded in 1876, this is one of Central Asia’s largest and oldest collections of art and archaeological artefacts. Walking through the museum is like being transported in a time capsule across the entire span of human habitation in the region, from prehistory up to modern times. Exhibits include wonderful examples of ancient rock carvings, beautifully wrought pieces of medieval jewellery, coins of various origins and dates that bear witness to the long history of global trade in this region, elegant pottery utensils, fine textiles and much more besides.
