Central State Museum of Kazakhstan, Almaty, Kazakhstan

The Central State Museum of Kazakhstan is devoted to all aspects of the Kazakhstan history and present-day life, from ancient times to modern period.

Visiting this museum is probably the best way to obtain a solid and uninterrupted picture of what Kazakhstan was long time ago, where it is now, and what its prospects are for the future.
