This museum has some wonderful Kyrgyz carpets and interesting paintings. It is worth visiting while in Bishkek. more »
Bishkek has very few decent museums and this is one of them. It has very limited selection of arts unless it’s a special exhibition. But it’s worth checking out, it costs pennies and will take you about 30-50 minutes.
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!
