The National Museum of Myanmar was founded in 1952 with its premises at what was
once the Jubilee Hall. In 1970 the museum was moved to a more spacious building on Pansodan Street. But these premises were not originally constructed to house a museum. The present National Museum is located on Pyay Road in a splendid five-storey building constructed for the purpose in spacious and specially landscaped grounds.

Opening Hours – Open daily 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, except Myanmar New Year Holidays (Thingyan Festival) in April. Admission Fees: US$ 5.
