  • 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.
  • The Museum presents for the President from the representatives of the different countries. Looked at the former place of work. Interesting.

  • A very nice and informative Museum. The descriptions of the exhibits are available also in English. It was something unpleasant in the summer heat of sandals to wear shoe covers made of plastic

  • Really interesting to visit there, where were dealt with Affairs of State. It is important to note: the Museum is open to the 18:00, but allowed to 17:15. To view the entire Museum will need at least an hour.
