3.8
#3 of 11 in Museums in Bishkek
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.

    I have to say, I'm not particularly a fan of museums, but the museum dedicated to Frunze worth attention. Many museums that wanted to visit were closed. find affordable, not donated. Of particular interest is the House in which he was born Frunze. Original and reflecting fully the time. I advise all those interested in history.

    Strange place. The Museum built around the lodge whose name was once called our town. Museum employees helpful as always, be sure to tell you something interesting.
