Tajikistan is a poor country, so has little money for a national museum or proper archiving. The museum does what it can. Most of the signs are in Tajik, with the occasional English paragraph to get your hopes up. And two exhibits are worth seeing - the Sarazm princess skeleton and the enormous Sleeping Buddha. A new museum is being planned, but this pretty worn museum is worth supporting. Just don't plan to linger all day.
