This is perhaps Ashgabat's most touching museum and the display includes once-banned photos of pre-1948 earthquakes as well as information about the five-year clean-up effort, the burying of 110,000 bodies and the building of a new city. Unfortunately the museum is usually locked (asking a guard nearby might get you inside). The Earthquake Museum is under the Earthquake Memorial, a bombastic bronze rendering of a bull and child (the baby Niyazov).
