  • 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.

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!
