It was difficult to get there as some of the roads were closed, but worth the effort.We were lucky to have an english guide.We were able to go right to the top of the building and had good views of the city Well worth a visit if you are in Astana

You can go to the top of the pyramid where there is a nice view from the conference room build to host world religious leaders.

A very serene and quiet place to visit. The museum parts are closed at the moment however. Best to visit for a concert or opera performance.

Not much to see, to tell the truth. There is a museum upstairs and an Art gallery Kulanchi which is worth seeing. The park around the Palace is picturesque if the weather is good))

Arrived on a very cold, snowy day, to be told that the elevators were not working for an indefinite period, and to try coming back next month! We were permitted to walk around the ground floor, but no trip up to the top. We asked if we could walk up, and were told no. Hmmph!

We had a guided tour (in English). Taking the elevator up to the 3rd floor and then the steps to the sumiit was fun and interesting. You can stand on a spot right under the summit of the pyramid and make a wish. And on the top floor there's a quite remarkable meeting room. Doesn't cost much and there's not... More

It is not expensive, and they do offer tours in English (I got a personal tour since I was the only English only person). Opera house on bottom two floors, then a large meeting hall, the garden area and finally the circular conference room at the top. Not that much history, but if you go to Astana why not check...

This unique and beautiful building is a 'must see' for travelers to Astana. As this is an 'Official Cultural Building' a tour (600TG or about $3.50 US) is required to view any exhibit not on the first floor. Thankfully, these official tours are conducted in all major languages of the world.

For 600 tenge, you get an English tour, including the large room in the center of the pyramid occasionally used for meetings, and the interesting circular conference room at the top. The yellow and blue dove decorations on the glass are spectacular.

Unlike any other monument on the planet. I received a free tour in English (had to pay a couple bucks for a ticket at the entrance). It's wonderful, and don't go to Astana without visiting.
