  • This place blew our expectations out of the water. It is a very big, extensive gallery of art from Soviet-era artists and contemporary Kyrgyz works. The entry is 100s for adults and there is a student discount for 40s. We almost didn't go, but I'm v glad we did! Especially since the history museum is closed, this is a must see!
  • Unfortunately, this museum was closed when I visited it (Google’s advertised opening times were a little out). I did enjoy the art sculptures on display outside, especially the abstract layered portrait of a miner.
