The building is impressive and located in a lovely park. The museum itself is okay, there are a few nice objects but nothing that will blow your mind. Mostly recreations rather than actual archeological artifacts. There was a very charming series of dioramas about the various ethnic groups living in Kazakhstan.

Nice. Ticket of adults 300 tenge. For students 200 tenge and pupils 100 tenge.
