Nature Museum

Address: Shevchenko Street, Almaty
Timings: Mondays to Fridays 10 am to 4 pm

Part of the Zoology Research Institute under the Academy of Sciences, this place acts as a lab and archival record as well as a public display facility. It contains two major sections – the Zoology section and the Paleontology Section.
The Zoology Section contains a huge variety of stuffed and preserved animals native to Kazakhstan and the adjoining lands – birds, insects, mammals large and small, and reptiles.
The Paleontology Section contains fossilized and petrified specimens – skeletons and trees – dating back to prehistoric times. Some of the more interesting ones include the giant mammoth, rhinoceros, and mastodons.
This place will take you on a journey back in time, in a surreal world where men were insignificantly small in size and number, and make you discover what natural beauty we miss out on in today’s modernized world.
