Central State Museum Of The Republic Of Kazakhstan Reviews & Ratings

  • Huge building, interesting from the architectural point of view. Museum itself has exhibitions on prehistory, a bit on stone and iron age, something on nomad tribes etc. I found the part on ethnic minorities in Kazakhstan very interesting. Museum could do with some refurbishing, it could be more interactive.

  • Enormous stylish building with interesting spaces to fill yet it looks like a High school end of the year science-history fair. This Museum is so badly curated !!! The information in English, French or German are whimsical. This Museum is a pale echo to the one in Nursultan (Astana). The reward to go there is located on the 2nd floor with bits and bobs on the Soviet era spacial program and, possibly, one if the 3 Sputnik prototype... no information available!!! The Museum shop is unbelievably lame.

  • Don't forget to pay for additional ticket to get access to the protected room for the museum's gold and jewelry collection. It costs 1300 Tenge on top of the regular entry fee. You can ask for a guide who speaks English and several other languages. No photo and video is allowed in here. There are very interesting and extremly fine handmade gold aertifact and precious stone on display.

  • Has lots of exhibits in 4 large halls. Some are more interesting than others but well worth a stop.

  • The building is impressive and located in a lovely park. The museum itself is okay, there are a few nice objects but nothing that will blow your mind. Mostly recreations rather than actual archeological artifacts. There was a very charming series of dioramas about the various ethnic groups living in Kazakhstan. Go if you have the time, but don’t worry about missing it, if coming here strains your itinerary.
