“A visit to understand the history of the region”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

I enjoyed the visit and learnt a lot. However, the perspective under the exhibition is organized is very nationalist. What I mean is that understanding the history and current ethnical and culture misture of Kz requires presenting everything from a central asian perspective. Also, the soviet period history is presented in a very kind and polite way.

“Some cool stuff”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

There is very little English, but entrance is cheap and many of the artefacts speak for themselves. There are additional exhibitions that you pay for separately. We didn't go to any of these. The basic exhibitions took us an hour or two to move through, from dinosaurs to modern Kazakhstan.

“worth viewing for the cost”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

the museum is decent for just viewing items and historical artifacts relevant to Kazakhstan. there is not much english and its hard to determine the story at times but for the small admission fee, its worth stopping in for a walk around.
