If you have free time and nothing to do, but not really a "must", I just dont recommend it when its cold, because the tour could be long.

This place isn't exactly fantastic, but this is why I gave it a generous 4 star review: if it's your first time in KZ, this attraction will give the sense of context what the country is like. The mountains, the cities, the Caspian lake (yeah it's not a sea). Gives you a glance of the whole country. I really believe... More

I ended up enjoying this place more than I expected myself to. This is basically a miniature world of Kazakhstan, albeit somewhat disorganised. The quality of the miniatures is not mind-blowingly intricate, but I also don't think that is the point of the place either. With Kazakhstan being the 9th largest country in the world, there are a lot of... More

Very cool place, you can see not only a small copy of Astana, but also all other cities. I have come here 3 times, and every times its very interesting

This miniature park that hosts most attractions of Kazakhstan is certainly interesting as it provides a quick overview over all regions of this large country that you otherwise might miss (e.g. For me particularly the mausoleums in Mangistau were interesting to see as a model). However, one has to admit that most models look quite poorly made and certainly are... More

I wish I had gone to this one on my first day in Astana. It's like a miniture world of Kazachstan. It's mostly outside but the depiction of Astana is inside. I wish I had seen this the first day because it has a nice overview of all the great and interesting buildings. Had I known about some of them,... More

It was nice to see the size of the country and the variety. But difficult to follow since numbers were not easily followed and did not come in numerical order

Very informative museum on Kazakhstan history. There are a lot of little makets of real buildings devided by regions. Should be interesting for little children. Entrance fee 250 tenge (2$). You may take a guide who will explain details - 200 tenge(1.5$).

I nearly fell off my chair when I saw how this was rated, having just visited this with my teenaged children. The idea is a perfectly good one - think Legoland, but the result is dire and the whole set up is tired and dilapidated. The main problems are that the buildings are all totally out of scale with each... More

After Baiterek Atameken should definitely be your No 2 sight-seeing in Astana. It represents a map of Kazakhstan (with pretty much all the major cities) with miniature buildings, mountains, railroads adn pretty much everything that could be interesting in Kazakhstan. For those who haven't been to other regions of the country it would be possible to see how big Kazakhstan... More
