  • The city is becoming rather good location? Nature, displayed a comprehensive article, such as history, but without features. Also like a socialist country is related to modern independence movement exhibition rich?

  • It has a collection of applied art. It was ok, but nothing special and could easily be skipped when visiting Almaty. 
  • Beautifill collections, they need to improve Iternational language, as we miss some informations and connections
  • It's quite an interesting place to visit. The entrance ticket for students costs 200 tenge. They offer tours in Russian, Kazakh, and English as well.
  • Displays from a very wide range of Kazakh history. Very educational!
  • Did not like the Museum. The building is beautiful. 1 room interesting. And that's all. Sadness.

  • No discounts for foreign students. In the Golden Fund of the need to buy a separate ticket (1300 t) with a guided tour, but no tour we do not exert (all there just chatted), and fund a lot of fakes, we are not fools. In 2 other boring Hall still must buy individual tickets (i.e. 1000!), just crazy. Everywhere it is forbidden to photograph, although bought permission to photo (200 t). It turns out, this ticket allows to photograph only in the "lobby" of the Museum, where there are no tracks. Decals purely nepolezny type "don't touch". Exhibits are obsolete, except groteskovogo Hall "Kazakhstan", that represents the apotheosis of ličnočti worship someone that can be seen in any Museum in the country. It is clear that all the money went to Astana for the misguided huge and very empty new Museum, but such deeds of the old Central Museum of the Republic can only ruin yourself. Sad, sad and ashamed.
