A museum dedicated to a Soviet hero after whom the city was named prior to Bishkek. Lots of photographs with the usual suspects in Soviet history including Stalin and Trotsky. There are other exhibits such as uniforms and a replica of the house where he lived as a child. The museum is mixed in terms of labelling in English. It... More

A three storey museum with a house of the type Frunze grew up in on the ground floor, and two floors of exhibits above. There is no signage or narrative in English, and the compulsory guide speaks only Russian also. Nevertheless a compact, well-laid out museum of artefacts, documents and photographs relating to the life and times of this national... More

We had a good visit and learned alot on the history of M Frunze, a companion of Stalin and Lenin who fought the Eastern Front in 1917-1919. Signing is mostly translated. But all in all its a comprehensive visit. Last, you can see birth place/house - lower ground.

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.

Small but to me I found it interesting. I was with a person who was also very well versed in Russian so it did help me to understand more than the average visitor I guess. I went a couple of times. I actually liked looking at the architecture. This is the past, but one learns about the future from the... More

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.
