State Museum of History of Uzbekistan, Uzbekistán 

The State Museum of History of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Uzbekistan is one of Central Asia’s largest and oldest research and educational institutions, dating back more than 120 years.

The museum contains a unique collection of over 250,000 archeological, numismatic and ethnographic exhibits and archival materials. After the Republic of Uzbekistan became independent, the collection was rearranged to reflect the results of the latest research into history from the Stone Age to the present. The exhibits demonstrate that Uzbekistan is one of the most ancient centers of Eastern civilization. The museum also has rare archive materials representing the major phases of the history of the Uzbek people.

Unique examples of sculpture, painting, ceramics, bronze and glass artifacts, and ritual burial artifacts illustrate the history of the world view and the religious and aesthetic ideas of various epochs.
