My home town. Always loved this little museum. Very well maintained, plenty of very interesting artifacts. Gives a good idea of the middle class household at the end of the 19 -beginning of the 20th century.

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.

I really like the house of Frunze. This house always gives me impression of late 19 centuries houses. I also would reccommend to look the second floor o fthe museum. There you can find many interesting things belonged to the wellknown Frunze as a commander of the whole Turkestan region. I like most the swords presented to Frunze by Emir;s... More

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
