  • Worth 50 kgs and has 50 soms for pofotkat′ resolution. The exhibits are all old and some are worth attention. In general everything is pretty good. It is entirely justified for this area.

  • We visited the Museum a group of tourists after the end of the mountain sports campaign on the Kyrgyz Ridge. Museum exceeded expectations and we really liked it, a lot of information and exhibits. Especially it would be desirable to note the guide through the Museum, we went Aselû. It is very interesting and will gladly meet told me on numerous questions:-)

  • If you get this far then you need to take a look at this museum which is jam packed with stuff. Slightly difficult to follow all of it as there are few English translations but just take a look at the pictures I posted. And of course if you have got this far then congratulations to you for your perseverance and di you go and see the Petrographs up the road.
  • Great exhibits and knowledgeable staff, a surprise gem of a spot on lake. They're working on an english tour but the russian one is obviously better, if you can understand it.
