Included in the entrance fee is a free guided tour (KZ/RU/ENG).
The building is very impressive from the outside as well as inside. Designed by Forster and Partners (UK). Being a pyramid shaped building, is not Forster & Partners (F&P) normally do, they are better known for a more rounded designs. However, I was surprised how spacious and good use of spaces within the building, both from the ground level right up to the top.
Ground - Theatre, Middle level - Art Space, Top - Conference Room (with Presidential lift).
Just below the Top level there is a Plant Area with a set of stairs going up and another set of stairs going down, one of the F&P's signature work.
Lots of glass and nature lights, some with doves and sky design.
The Art Space is both a gallery as well as a real Artist work space.
The Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.
The shop is quite well stocked, within a small space. I would have expected a building guide/booklet, but there was none, either to buy or a give away.There are building signs, but hard to read/see, as very strong light reflections (see pix).
The shop staff was very helpful, even when they are on a "food" break she came and gave me back the items I brought earlier.
Overall a great place to visit and value for money with a free guided tour.
