mid-size, but interesting

very informative and entertaining. Staff only speaks local languages, but very enthusiastic: they keep explaining the stories until you understand it :-) Well recommended

Almost all the descriptions are not in english, and those workers of the museum don't know any english at all. Inside you can see some interesting stuff from soviet era life and from life of Frunze in particular. So, if you interested in life of Frunze and USSR - you should definitely check it out! Tickets are very cheap, cheaper... More

The museum has English descriptions, unfortunately not everywhere. The informations seemed to us not chronological or in any other order, so it was hard a bit to find out, what Mr. Frunze made so famous. That's why I suggest to gather a bit informations about him before. For us as interested English speaking tourists the museum was worth it. 100... More

This museum is dedicated to the soviet hero "Frunze". Well... It's so over the top in idolizing him that it made me remember north Korean museums. Also, there are extremely few information in English, so you don't really understand many things.

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
