  • A wonderful museum, many documentary sources, even the house in which M.V. Frunze lived with his family is preserved, with all the household items of the time. Here you can get acquainted with the history of the origin of the Kyrgyz Republic, the city of Frunze, you can learn a lot, how people lived at that time, what they thought and dreamed, and at what cost they got the property of the socialist past. The museum will be interesting not only to the residents of the city, but also to tourists coming to our country.
