  • The largest Museum of art in the country. There is a painting, the sculpture of small forms, graphics, etc. The real attraction, primarily would recommend visitors go here, of course if you are interested in art.

  • A small museum, the entire Hall was 4. Spacious, but few exhibits for such space. 2 halls with modern paintings and 1 room with works of art by local artists. The inscriptions on the Russian language is necessary to guide will probably not. Lovers of fine art will be interesting just for tourists are unlikely.

  • One of the city's most popular museum, what you should know before visit it: - Named as Gaspar Aitiev in honor a famous local artist, one of the first Soviet Kyrgyz artist. - ‎Ticket price 100 soms (foreigns) - ‎You will find a mixture of collections: Kyrgyz national, Soviet and modern art. - ‎Different sections: Applied Arts, Sculptures, Pictorial Arts, Graphic Arts. Also, is common find temporal exhibitions of local artists. - ‎It's a big complex, you could spend almost half day. I highly recommend visit this place.
  • A good place to get an impression of kyrgyz art, both classical and modern type. The building itself is worth a visit as an architectural example of its period. Large parts of the museum are being renovated at the moment and are thus not accessible (july 17)
  • Very nice experience! Worth a visit, I would love to present my next book around here.
  • So wonderful museum Love it ♥ So many times i walk here...
  • A great cultural place to visit, specially Central Asian culture.
