No english makes for a poor visit... a lot of pictures and articles but no nameplates in english. I was not able to learn anything from this visit not knowing the story of Frunze beforehand.

Very interesting displays of artifacts related to the accomplishments, mostly military, of Mikhail Frunze. Since I don't read Russian, most of what I learned came from looking at the maps, pictures and displays. Still worth the visit and very modest fee.

Frunze's childhood home preserved within the museum, as well as various communist revolution and civil war time artifacts, make this place a must for anyone interested in Soviet history.

The museum they'd rather you didn't see....so, driving through downtown Bishkek and guide person casually says, "on the right is museum of Mikhail Frunze". "Stop the car!" shouts I.

Bishkek gets its airport code (FRU) from this Communist who the Soviets sent to lead this city. The top floor has some photos of Mikhail and the old days and two Old Ladies patrol to ensure you don't take any photos. Some of the displays have English translations, most not. The second floor is a tribute to the old Soviet... More

This museum is dedicated to one of the country's heroes, and unfortunately if you can't read Russian, you won't learn much walking through this museum. We were cautioned (politely) not to take photos or lean on the display glass. Entrance is $1 US for foreign visitors.

This cute little museum really amazed me. It is still very much Soviet-style, but in a quaint way I find that very positive. General Frunze is a very important Central Asian general from the early communist/Soviet Union days. The museum shows many things and lots of fotos which date back to that time. Having that exhibit in a modern museum... More

Quite small, very Soviet and interesting if that's what you're into. One of the highlights is a scale replica of his house on the bottom floor. The lack of English language descriptions is what lets an otherwise worthy museum down.
