An amazing museum, a must see objective, no doubt! Very impressive, for sure! Just an opinion: they have to remove those "pieces of art" who has a direct connection with Soviet era or they are about the cult of personality - you will understand me if you will pay attention to the artifacts: amazing artworks near some impossible to watch operas... Otherwise, wow!

Very modern building. Good displays although the lettering explaining the display is very small. I did not have time to see the entire museum. Will definitely go back.

Pros: Cool building. Cheap entry. Decent pre-history display. Additional arts exhibit and visiting/temporary displays Cons: Astana room is kinda blank. Other than military/political items there's no modern social history displays. Contemporary art exhibit is dull and lacks variety compared to European galleries. Have to pay extra for gold rooms.

Tour guide is mostly unavailable. Went there with guests 3 times and couldn't find any available one. The biggest drawback - they don't allow to take a stroller with the baby.

Love it! I recommend visiting at 3pm since there is a grand show with a huge flying golden bird in the main hall starting at this time. You have to book an English speaking guide in advance, and you can always rent an audio guide. The halls of ancient history and etnography are really good.

With a free entrance, this is one of the places in Astana that you should visit. You need to spend 2-3 hours to visit everything, I think. Update: Entrance is not free anymore. It is around 800 KZT (approximately 2.5 USD) to 1500 KZT (approximately 5 USD), depending on the parts of the museum that you are going to visit. It consists of several floor (7 or 8 as I remember), and in each floor there are different things to visit. In my idea, it is the best museum and the biggest one in the Astana city. Similar to most of the public places in Astana, if you visit there in the winter time, there is a plcae which takes your heavy coats and clothing and keeps them for you during your visit.

Beautiful museum. Entry fee is 600 KZT, but if you want Gold Road, you will pay 1100 KZT. Opening hours is from 10am till 18pm except mondays (thats closed). Multimedia room just amazed me, so many diplays on the ground and the wall with projection is unbeliavable. Must see! :)

Exhibits are good and there is lots to see. I love that most descriptions are translated into English and Russian from Kazakh. However, none of the women's restrooms had toilet paper or soap. Be prepared and bring your own tissues and hand sanitizer.

Pretty interesting displays, the Golden Warrior and try to catch the spectacular twice a day Eagle display

It is New Museum that was opened couple of years ago! Everything is new and very beautiful inside! There are always interesting expositions there! You can have an English speaking guide there! Everything is translated to English and Russian!

It's a brand-new musum. Very big, clean and well staffed. So many things to see here. I just wish they have more art. They also do guided tour in English. Just ask if you need one. It's better to take guided tour as it's a big meseum and different halls have different in and out gares and very easy to lose track that what part you have seen and what left.

I came in from the pouring rain at 5:05, because they close at 6 and the rain was supposed to stop by then. They said the ticket office was closed and they couldn't let me pay or come in at all. They sent me back out into the rain over bureaucratic nonsense. Some way to welcome foreign visitors. Oh, and earlier in Kazakhstan, a police officer detained me and I had to pay him money to leave. A very bureaucratic and corrupt country apparently.
