Yangon's revamped National Museum of Myanmar unveiled
Yangon, December 12, 2016
 

The National Museum of Myanmar in Yangon has reopened in November, following a major refurbishment as part of a 100-day plan set out by the Ministry of Culture under the new government.

 

The revamp included the redecoration of the exhibition space on the top floor to better showcase the different ethnicities in Myanmar and their traditional costumes and weaving patterns.

 

 

Another highlight at the museum is the Royal Lion Throne of the last Burmese monarch King Thibaw.

 

Meanwhile, visitor-friendly features at the museum include signs in both Burmese and English as well as air-conditioning in all 14 exhibition halls.

 

Located on Pyay Road in Yagon’s Dagon township, the museum opens from 09.30 to 16.30 on Tuesdays through Sundays, and is closed on public holidays. The entrance fee for foreigners is 5,000 kyat (US$3.80) and 500 kyat for Myanmar citizens.
