Usually admission charges or so called entrance tickets for historical monuments and museums are considerably more expensive for foreigners than for locals but the rates are still within or lower than European or American standards. Small children are not charged. Students and schoolchildren are entitled to discounts.
PhotosUsing cameras and videos in museums and monuments is charged extra to the entrance ticket. In some museums flashes are prohibited.
Open HoursMost sights are open standard hours 10a.m. to 6p.m. with no break for lunch. One day per week and one day at the end of each month they are closed for major clean-up. These days may vary for different museums and sights so visitors may need to check beforehand.
TipsTipping is a matter of your choice. Local guides and drivers, especially those who accompany you through your journey in Uzbekistan would expect tip upon completion of your itinerary.
Usually, porters at hotels and airports are tipped as well. Unless you believe you are asked exorbitant sums, you can pay as you think fit.
