  • What an amazing experience. For a small museum, the place is jam-packed with artefacts and memorabilia. Sadly most are in Russian, but we were fortunate to have a military person who happened to visit the museum at the same time, offering to give us explanations which was just great. They have an excellent model of the Issel-Kul Lake with background which makes the visit really beneficial. The museum is very centrally located and on the Main Road of Cholpon Ata.
  • A nice museum you shoul visit.
