(2.9/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Explore the country's history at Mikhail Frunze Museum, a metallic, cube-shaped building, the three-story museum documents the life of the Bishkek-born Bolshevik leader who gave name to the city during its Soviet period. A preserved house in which Frunze grew up is on the ground floor with well-restored rooms and genuine household items. The museum has well-laid out artifacts, genuine documents, and old photographs as well as scale models of military machines, airplanes, and trains. You can explore a relief map of Frunze's travels in Kyrgyzstan and a restored dining room. There is very little labeling in English, so you should do a bit of research prior to your visit if you don't speak Russian.

  • House-Museum of the civil war hero Mikhail Vasilyevich Frunze. The Museum on the first floor be authentic House in which lived M.v. Frunze. The exposition of the Museum covers the period of struggle against basmachestvom on the territory of Central Asia in the 18-23 Gg of the last century. Interesting to examine is the exposition with the personal belongings of m., Frunze.
