As the National State Museum is located right on the Ala-Too Square, you are killing two birds with one stone, meeting the country's main square and one of the largest museums in the region. The very first exhibition of this museum goes back to March 5, 1927, but the current 8,000 square-meter building was built in 1984.
Exhibit items count exceeds 90,000: starting from the Stone Age and primitive communal systems and up to the modern Kyrgyz Republic. Many collections are a part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. This is the best museum to learn more about the history of the Kyrgyz Republic including its nomadic culture.
