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.

Spent a lovely afternoon here. Very beautiful building. We thought it might be closed until we were right up to the front door, so don't give up and turn away if it doesn't look open! Very friendly tour guide with great English (and a few other languages!) and a very informative tour. There is a theatre inside and we were... More

There is a replica of the city on 3rd floor. Entrance to the Palace is free but you need to pay to see the replica and wait for a guided tour but it gives you a Picture of Astana 2030

The very concept of this Pyramid of Peace and Accord is special. Every few years it is the site for leaders of world religions to gather and discuss global concerns. It's everyday life is that of cultural and community center: auditorium, coffee bar, art library, very nice art gallery and school, and an excellent souvenir and art shop. This is... More
