Information

The National Museum of the Union of Myanmar was first opened in June 1952 at the Jubilee Hall Building on Shwedagon Pagoda Road, Yangon. It was moved to 24/26 Pyay Road, Dagon Township, and was reopened to the public on 18 September 1996. It is an imposing five-storey building with the total dimension of 380 ft. by 200 ft. The height of the building is 80 ft. The floor exhibit area is 194,800 sq. ft. The museum offers a frank and unpretentious record of the cultural development of the country to reflect the people's sincere pride for a unique past. A masterpiece of the National Museum is the 180 year-old Lion Throne of Myanmar Kings that is displayed in the Lion Throne Hall on the ground floor. Richly ornamental attires of the last Myanmar King and Queen, the furniture used in the Mandalay Palace as well as royal regalia, paintings of famous artists, folk arts and crafts, traditional utensils of Myanmar ethnic groups and materials for Myanmar performing arts can also be found. There are 14 show rooms open to the public. The Museum is opened daily except officially published holidays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
