Regional Museum of Local History
Halls dedicated to archeology, visual arts, scientific discoveries, the khan periods, the Soviet era, and the independence of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
In 1836, in the city of Uralsk, was opened a regional historical museum of local lore, which today has more than one hundred thousand valuable samples of historical heritage. Its structural component has 8 rooms, specialized in various subjects. These include halls dedicated to archeology, visual arts, scientific discoveries, the khan periods, the Soviet era, and the independence of the Republic of Kazakhstan. In the hall of archeology are exhibits of the Paleolithic era, and the oldest of them date back to the 5th century BC. The rooms connected with the history of the khan rule demonstrate many examples of medieval weapons and portrait images of the rulers themselves. The “Soviet era” introduces visitors to the main events of the 20th century, and the part that is devoted to the history of Independent Kazakhstan is characterized by documents and photographic materials that reflect the essence of the formation of an independent country.
The regional local history museum often holds ceremonial cultural events, therefore, in addition to informative excursion lectures, you will also find interesting performances, exhibitions and thematic expositions.
