Art and soviet history enthusiasts unite! Bishkek is a cute capital to wander and soak up some of Central Asia's soviet past and this museum provides. The building is nothing impressive but it's still worth browsing inside for an hour or so. It's a nice mix of modern art with older soviet-era artifacts. Check for any temporary exhibitions before you visit!
A modest entrance fee is 100 som. Closed on Mondays.

Though Kyrgyzstan's 'Gapar Aitiev State Museum of Fine Arts' may not be up to the standards of the museums in world capitals like Paris and London, it makes for an interesting walkthrough to get a look at Kyrgyz crafts and culture through the ages. The work represented starts in pre-Soviet, goes through the varying preferences of the Soviet era, and on into modern Kyrgyz work of artists who are still at work in the country today. The museum is closed on Mondays, so don't come through on that day!

Il est difficile de trouver un musée d'art dans la région du Kirghizistan. Ce musée expose l'art et les installations auprès de jeunes artistes locaux.
