National Museum of Myanmar

The National Museum of Myanmar was founded in 1952 with its premises at the Jubilee Hall. In 1970 the museum was moved to a more spacious place on Pansodan Street. But these premises were not originally constructed to be a museum. The present National Museum is located at No. 66/74, Pyay Road, Dagon Township, Yangon, Myanmar which is a splendid five-storey building constructed for the purpose in spacious and specially landscaped grounds. The National Museum of Myanmar houses an extensive collection of Burmese artifacts and is the country’s principal cultural museum.

Priceless ancient artifacts, works of art and historic memorabilia are on display in 14 halls on five storey building.

National Museum of Myanmar is 4.2 Km far from Pyay Garden Residence and it takes about 11 minute- drive to get there from the Residence.
