  • An intimate museum of old and new musical instruments. The instruments are well arranged and presented.  more »
  • A small but very impressive museum of musical folk instruments. In several halls provided a huge variety of not only Kazakh folk instruments, but also exhibits from many countries of the world. The museum is interactive - near some showcases sounds a piece of music performed by a musical instrument. So not only visually see the instrument, but also get an idea of its sound. I remember one visitor - a boy of about 4, who at each window asked: "Mom, is it a balalaika? And where is the balalaika?: As a result, almost all visitors entering the next hall turned his eyes around, worrying, and suddenly there will be no balalaika) She found in the last hall of musical instruments of different nations. In the end, all the visitors gathered around her and waited with relief and interest for the baby's reaction. Someone even joyfully exclaimed, "There is, there is a balalaika!" "So you're like a balalaika," the toddler said, seeing her.
