About the museum

The history of A. Kasteyev State Museum of Arts began in 1935, when the former Government of Kazakhstan issued a decree as of September 23 about organizing the Kazakh State Art Gallery.

    Очень часто бываю в Алмате, но это был первый музей, который я посетила. Очень понравился,много картин различных эпох.Честно сказать,была даже удивлена,что в музее есть картины ХVI вв.,есть картины "дублированные" объёмными барельефами, для слабовидящих людей. Понравились картины современных художников, выполненные в необычном исполнении: в них использовались и кабели USB,и гофрированная бумага. Понравились Матрёшки раскрашенные в национальные казахские костюмы. Всем советую полюбоваться этим
