“worth coming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

The museum displays various periods in the history and prehistory of Kazakhstan: the dinosaurs, early humanoids and a skeleton of a mammoth, can all be found here.
the ethnic diversity of Kazakhstan is well displayed in the museum - a Mongol tent fully equipped, working tools, artwork and more.
the cost was so small - that i can't quite remember it - i think it was around 100 tenge (less then 1$ )

“Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

The city tour is incomplete without visiting it. Must have a guide to know about kazak. The history is too new. The museum is very nicely kept and not all crowded.

“interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

It's interesting to go there for expositions just once. However, very often there are many craft fairs there. Nice items can be found there.

“Not a fabulous museum of western-standards but a rich collection nevertheless”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

.. the layout and collections might seem haphazard to the western eye but there is al ot to see and learn about in this museum, There is plenty of English signage. I was part of a study tour and this museum added a lot to our understanding of the region.
Appreciate the low-cost entry.
