A Memorial Museum in Tashkent!

Tashkent, Tashkent Region, Uzbekistan
11 Kudos
Tashkent is the capital city of Uzbekistan. This interesting city has a museum dedicated to the victims of political repression. The Museum of Victims of Political Repression was founded and opened back in 2002 and it is located in a complex with other statues and structures. There's a small entrance fee for this museum. My Uzbek friend had arranged an English tour during our visit which really made the visit better because the English guide highlighted all the important details of each section of the museum. This is a truly sad part of the country's history and the museum highlights it using pictures, audios, clips, and even personal belongings of the repressed. What's interesting is this museum is located right across the Tashkent TV tower. During the construction of the tower, they discovered a mass grave on the site, so they chose to build the memorial right across.
