It was a huge museum, each floor has at least 3-4 sections and there were 5 floors if I am not mistaken. There is an entrance fee pay at the counter (foreigner - 5000 kyats). If you are a person keen to know history, this...More

The museum was 4 storeys high, with sections categorised neatly. You'd be amazed to read through the histories of the the antiques and fossils that were placed on display here. Tickets were 5,000 kyatt (May 2018) per person. There's only one thing that's quite unpleasant,...More

The National Museum of Myanmar is one of those museums where you will get lost and find yourself wondering what you are doing there if you are alone and a foreigner. The Audio equipment the museum provides to foreigners is not that extensive. I went...More

If you like old things, hidden under old dust, well, this is the place to go. There are some beautiful pieces of art, especially sculpture. I love performing arts and was upset with the way they treat their collections : no lights, dusty, no information,...More

The museum is in no particular order. The guide will speak to you as if he is translating from a book. To gather history was tough. So dark inside. My interest was only the early days bullock carts.The way the wheels are designed

This museum is theme-based, so the history of Myanmar is a bit jumbled as you move from archaeology to regalia to art to ethnic groups. I wasn't looking for chronology, so it made sense to me.

Rich culture and history, very interesting for us. The Lion Throne is the main attraction of the museum, excellent design. There are about 4 rooms per floor, each with its own theme (e.g. Musical Instruments, Cultural Costumes, Sculptures, etc.) The museum has a sign at...More

The was an interesting tour. Best of all it was air conditioned and not super crowded. It is great to gain an understanding of the multiple peoples that comprise Myanmar.

For the size of the facility I was expecting a lot more but it was well laid out and spacious which made it easy for my wife to navigate with her mobility scooter. Elevators were tight but we managed.

Working in a museum myself I may be overly critical. But the natural history of Myanmar is fascinating.

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... More
