  • We went to the "Night at the Museum" action. And gladly reviewed almost every object. I advise you to pay for the museum 2 days, as you are very tired to walk on many floors of the museum.

  • The National Museum of Kazakhstan occupies a building with a huge square. You can trace the history of Kazakhstan to the present day. I really like the exhibitions that take place in the spacious and cozy halls of the museum. Exhibit interesting artists of different directions.

  • You can easily skip the gold chamber since it's not such a great attraction
  • Enjoyable museum over numerous floors to visit. I didn't get the audio tour and feel I probably missed out by not taking that option, so I would recommend doing that when you visit. I spent about an hour and a half here, some exhibits were closed and I did go through some slightly faster.
