  • Museum architectural spectacular, and very interesting inside. You learn a lot about the people who inhabited the great steppes, their art, their customs, way of life, etc. Gold rooms are worth to see. In conclusion, a Museum of etnografico-historico character - art is worth worthwhile visit and enjoy.

  • Were at the Museum last winter from the road where a taxi stop, we barely got to the entrance-snow covered all the tracks. Drive right to the entrance is not possible (((Museum staff smiling and friendly guys but can't explain where are the main exponents. We have all asked, where is the Golden man, all meet there. But we did not find him so. At the entrance to the large hole several times a day is pafosnoye submission-golden bird parhaet under the potalkom. it's almost an hour and waited for donated-it isn't worth it. But pleased Hall of modern art and exhibition dedicated to the period of Stalinist repression. You can see that it must be the last historians with soul and compassion. Imennotam you can read the story about stones that aul'skie children threw prisoners. It turned out to be pieces of Kurt (dried sour-salty cheese), which helped to save from starvation. Highly recommend this exhibit.
