The museum has a total area of 24 000 m2, of which over 15 000 m2 are exhibition halls. It is composed of four exhibition departments—Department of Natural History, Department of Ancient and Medieval History, Department of Modern and Contemporary History, and Department of Fine and Applied Arts. The National Museum of Tajikistan (Tajik. Osorkhonai Milli Tokikiston) is located in the capital of Tajikistan, Dushanbe. Until 2011, he was named after the famous Persian miniature painter Kamoliddin Bihzod, who worked in the courtyards of Hussein Baikar and Ismail I. In March 2013, he was transferred to the new building - the National Museum of Tajikistan.

In 1959, the museum was transformed into a republican united museum of historical and local lore and fine arts. On November 27, 1999, by the Decree of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan, the museum named after K. Behzad received national status.
In March 2013, the opening ceremony of the new building of the National Museum of Tajikistan took place in Dushanbe. The museum consists of 22 large and small exhibition halls.
