Central State Museum of Kazakhstan reviews
Generally interesting and we'll set out. Some section were closed during our visit though. Takes you through the various archeological ages up to the present political situation. more »
The exterior of the building is very impressive. The exhibition of the nomadic life was okay, with very little information but unfortunately the Genghis Khan exhibit was closed. Good to visit but... more »
National museum, slightly strange though. There's a hall in the middle where there was a Christmas market in december, surrounded by the museum rooms around. Many of the rooms were closed. The only exhibits I could access were an ethnographic collection, an exhibition on Kazakh independence and a bunch of stuffed animals.
Visited mid September. I understand they may close on Monday's but when I went back next day they were closed again. Told to come back later in the week. Unfortunately I wasn't in Almaty that long.
