( Sightseeing / Museums )

A Karen Brown Recommendation
Ashkabad, Turkmenistan, Turkmenistan

Map Location is Not Accurate.
Do not use for Directional purposes.

You will definitely want to visit the Textile and Carpet Museum. It is housed in a beautiful white marble building in the center of Ashkabad. The carpets are dramatically displayed and there is even a model of a herdsman's hut with a hand-made carpet on the floor. There is a map on the wall that shows the regions where various carpets are woven and which tribes made them. A gigantic carpet (which is supposed to be the largest in the world) hangs on one wall. The museum also has wonderful exhibit of elaborately carved ivory drinking horns, many of these were discovered when excavating the ruins at Nisa. There are also beautifully displayed figures of men and women dressed in various costumes representing the styles of clothing used in different regions of Turkmenistan.
