Kyluet Ethnographic Museum

An amazing place where every visitor will learn the traditions, customs and culture of ancient Kazakhs.

This ethnographic museum in Shymkent is unique, because its building and the entire exposition were created by only one person - Kendebay Karabdalov. Kendebay Karabdalov recreated more than 10 musical instruments, pottery, housewares, that are the exact copies of the ancient ones. Part of the museum is located underground, being a kind of hilvet - an underground mosque. This place inspires for meditation, and spiritual enlightment. Here you can hear the sound of any musical instrument displayed. One can also visit a pottery workshop.
