  • 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)
  • A great cultural place to visit, specially Central Asian culture.
  • The most famous if not the only one art museum where you can see installations and paintings of kyrgyz artists.
  • Awesome museum
  • Better than expected
