Entrance fee costs 5,000 Myanmar Kyats. You'll have to leave your bags inside a locker outside the Museum. You may bring your phone inside. Be prepared to have your powerbank and or additional battery supply ready because the tour really took about 3 hours long!...More

Sorry it's taken a couple of weeks to catch up on Trip Advisor - so probably far too late. No you can't take bags into the National Museum and although you can take in a mobile phone you can't use it everywhere - but can take pictures of the Lion Throne. As earlier answers indicate there are some free lockers you can leave your bags in - provided the museum is not overwhelmed by visitors. Taking my class on a trip they were told by the museum to leave their bags on the bus, while I was allowed to use a locker - but by that time the bus had left. 5,000 kyat foreigners entry fee for me - my students were free being nationals of Myanmar.
