Myaungmya (Burmese: မြောင်းမြမြို့ [mjáʊɴmja̰ mjo̰]) is a town in Myaungmya Township, Ayeyarwady Region, Myanmar.

The town is home to the Myanmar Union Adventist Seminary, a Seventh-day Adventist seminary and Myaungmya Education College.

Myaungmya is where U Nu, the first premier of independent Burma, and Daw Khin Kyi, the wife of national leader General Aung San were born. It was also one of the towns where anti-colonial nationalistic education was implemented, with U Nu serving as district education officer.

George Orwell served as assistant superintendent of police in Myaungmya in 1924.
