Elaborate and spaciously set up. From art to prehistorical finds. There is a free audio tour which highlights maybe 30 items of the museum. Liked it a lot, we spent around 2 hours there.

I love a museum and so wanted to go. It's easy to find and quite well located. Think it was 5000 kyat to get in. It isn't amazingly curated but works. The reason for the average review is half the rooms are really really dark...More

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
