Also in the museum you will be able to see a special gift from the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev – his personal dombra and the sculpture “Steppe tunes”, which is dedicated to one of the legendary Kazakh kuishi Dina Nurpeisova.

Answers to these and many other questions will not just be told, but also shown by the museum staff. The best works of traditional music playing in the halls of the museum will not only serve the educational purpose, but will also give you an incomparable aesthetic pleasure.
