  • This is essentially a Museum of formation of modern Kazakhstan under the direction of n. Nazarabeva. Sometimes it seems that the personality of the President paid too much attention and is reminiscent of the Soviet Union, but it is interesting to get acquainted with the situation of the residence.

  • Free entrance to admire and learn about the history of the first President, but mostly the only longtime President of fact before the collapse of the Soviet Union. Interesting because it allows you to understand many things about Nazarbajev and especially the fact that it is really loved by the Kazakhs who continue to vote with percentages above 90%. Admirable quantity of gifts and securities received by the heads of State of the Western countries.

  • Visited the Museum with school children to say they liked only Hall sporting achievements) especially huge motorbike, who the world. It was interesting to see us gifts for foreign States and companies think they reflect higher skill of these countries. A little upset that part of the premises had been closed, and that all too "Museum", i.e. you can only look, but don't touch, and to be more precise, I would like for example sit behind the desk of the President, but he was immediately fenced in at the entrance to the room. In General, it was informative about take. P.s.: If you want to book a tour with a guide, you must notify the administration.

  • I was positively surprised by this museum. I thought it's solely about Nazarbayev but it isn't. There are exhibitions about the sport and Olympic achievements of the nation, as well as a collection of exotic gifts from various countries. No pictures alowed inside.

  • 它的正門很隱閉。好難找。大街門口祇有俄語和哈薩克語。没有告示和指示告知你入口。問本地人都不知。指你行東行西。入口要高度檢查。要穿鞋套和不能在各層拍照。㡳層和四樓不開。只有二。三樓才開。介紹總理和各國送給他的獎牌。
  • Cool Museum.
