  • The richest, diverse museum. If you do not have time, and want to see everything and immediately then you here. I advise you to schedule a full day's inspection. I recommend taking a tour guide. Very literate, knowledgeable, can lead a tour in any language. Interestingly, creatively approach their work.

  • 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. Go if you have the time, but don’t worry about missing it, if coming here strains your itinerary.
  • Nice. Ticket of adults 300 tenge. For students 200 tenge and pupils 100 tenge.
