Today the palace is rightfully considered an architectural monument of the early 20th century and is protected by the state. It is a historical profiled Museum in Samarkand, dedicated to the history of the local territory from ancient times to the beginning of the 20th century.

    The exposition of the museum has two sections: the Department of nature and the Department of history. All rooms inside the building are arranged in sequence, forming an enfilade.

The ceiling is decorated with carvings on a stick and painted with oil paints, along with gancha bars made in the style of carving “make-up” on the walls, colorful glass stained-glass stained glass windows give a special husn. To heat the building in winter, 7 mysterious ceramic-ornate “fireplace” furnaces were installed, the decoration of which gave the rooms a special husn and beauty.
