  • The huge new museum is an architectural treasure of constructivism as well as a home to the Golden man and an interactive 3D map of Astana. A must see! One big minus o ly works till 5pm.
  • Wide, rich and big compilation of Kazakhstan's culture masterpieces. Multi-language audio guide, several souvenir shops. Good place to spend much time.
  • Nice museum. The exhibitions include ancient and medieval history, Hall of Astana, ethnography, nomadic times and modern history as well. You need to pay an extra 1000T fit the Hall of Gold but I found it interesting. Lots of gold jewellery and decorated items are on display and the audio guide is included. Generally there are not much detailed descriptions which made it less informative so I would recommend the audio guide.
  • The building is attractive. The exhibits are not so interesting
  • Really huge museum! Very beautiful inside and outside!
