  • Was this Museum 2 times. Because he is one of the larger museums in Astana, wanted him to visit. Perrvyj was in the fall of 2-15 years. Then it was interesting, but pretty much everything in the Museum of the Kazakh. The second time was in the summer of 2016go the exhibition National Geographic I really liked it.
