What people are saying:

The door opened at 9:30 in the morning. Because I arrived too early, I had to go to the pagoda opposite to the entrance. Unexpectedly, I found an unexpectedly beautiful spot. I climbed up to the second floor of the pagoda. You can see multiple pagodas in the distance. It is a good place to take pictures. . The architectural space in the museum is tall and magnificent, but the collection is not as large as expected. There are some sculptures and photography works of bagan, and architectural models of the ancient kingdom on the first floor. On the second floor, there is a collection of many sculptures of Buddha. You can enjoy many Buddha statues and various images at once. What's interesting is that I don't know if I entered the venue too early, the lights in the hall were too late to turn on, and the exhibition room was dark, and I had to turn on the lights of my mobile phone to see the works clearly. The toilets are also not located in the same building in the museum, and can only be found after leaving the building.

    Museum is always right place to go!

    The building is pretty, i think they intend to resemble the old monastery of Bagan with this building. They show us good amount of artefacts. I wish they gave us more detailed information in English ...

    All the mediocre reviews because that's what this museum is

    I like museums a lot and top museums in such places especially, and I don't mind old-fashioned, even colonial ones and respective displays, but this is really just a loveless, dusty assemblage of medi...

    Why all the mediocre reviews?

    The archeological museum is a pleasant change of pace from temple-hopping and a pleasantly cool respite from the heat. But more than that, it's a place to make sense of the enormity of Bagan, get your...
