Firstly, its an impressive structure. If you like arcutecture its worth a look, and for those who want to take instrgram photos you will be spoiled for choice.

Our tour guides were enthusiastic, and totally fantastic. They made the experience, and their pride was clear to see. They could not have made us feel more welcome.

It was an intresting place to visit, however as we are prety spoiled for teck in the UK, many of the echibits are nothing that we are not alredy pretty framilar with. For children its perfect and they will get to learn about green energy, for adults its a bit basic, and scant on science.

We still had a great time, and there are some really fun artistic exhibits.

The glass walkway is also rather hair raising in a fun way!

The huge distinctive globe at the front of the Expo site is both an enduring symbol of Astana/ Nur Sultan’s trumpeting of its new found status and an interesting attraction in its own right . It seeks to explore and explain past, present and future energy sources over 8 floors and also has as display showing in mini scale the vast expansion of the city with its many and growing public buildings.

There are just enough displays of interest and a full tour will take a couple of hours but I suspect many visitors will be primarily attracted by the views from the higher floors of the structure which give spectacular views over the nearby buildings, some idea of the layout of the city and to the open steppe beyond the city boundary

Amazing place full of new knowledge of all types of the energy existing in this world. Each floor of the Exhibition is devoted to a particular type of the energy. You can touch and try many things. Everything is well equipped and quite modern. You can try 3d, VR, 360 planetarium, etc.
The territory of the Expo is big and very technological with sculptures and modern buildings.
At the Expo itself there is lack of places to eat (there are some cafes but mostly water and shacks).

A very nice place!You can spend a few hours in this place, learn and see many interesting things, even if you're not an engineer :) I recommend visiting this place with your family. Children will be thrilled. Outside there is a small park where children can play when the weather permits

Full disclosure: I went to Nur-Sultan (Astana) to see my favourite singer Dimash, who is from Kazakhstan. So I was positively pre-disposed to the city from the very beginning. But it did not disappoint. The architecture is gorgeous, people are lovely and the music was phenomenal.
Expo was a last minute visit, thrown in to fill time, so my expectations were relatively low. How interesting could a pavilion on Future Energy be (for a non-science person)? As it turned out, amazingly so. It was fascinating, with something for everyone: from interactive exhibits to super large video screens to a 3D experience to a glimpse of Kazakh culture and hospitality. The "ball" show on the planets is worth seeing and for those not afraid of heights, take a walk along the glass walkway up at the top.
Architecturally, it is another stunning building, far more interesting inside than the glossy exterior sphere would suggest. Each floor focuses on a particular type of energy (e.g. wind, solar, kinetic, space) and provides informative displays of one kind or another. I had many oooh and aaaah moments as I climbed from floor to floor, not wanting to miss a thing. (The glass elevators are worth taking as well. I just like my exercise!)
Definitely worth a visit. And not very crowded either, though it certainly draws tourists.

This Future Energy Exposition building is fascinating to walk through the 8 floors with each floor dedicated to a different type of Energy. Ie Space ,Solar, Biomass, Hydro , Electricity etc and also has a small coffee shop worthwhile to sit down for a breather.
Unfortunately no brouchures in English language which is a let down for foreigners like me visiting the Expo museum. Start from Eight floor and walk down. A tip if you wish to charge your mobile phones there is a sitting on 6 th floor terrace where you can do it if you have the wires!!

Also has a small section on ground floor about an introduction to Khazakhstan with some artifacts displayed.

Super designed post-modern complex. 7 storey, each demonstrating one type of renewable energy. Full of animations, interactive activities, experiments. It is worth to see, join and enjoy all of them
