The museum tells about the camp for the wives of traitors to the Motherland.
It’s definitely worth taking either a tour or an audio guide, because most of the exhibition is dedicated to the memories and history of the convicts

Alzhir, the camp for the wives of traitors of Motherland, is by definition a depressing place to visit. However, it is important you do. Stalin's paranoid atrocities cannot be better illustrated than by the systematic murder of women and children (after he had eliminated their husband/father). The displays are not "English friendly", but few words are needed to understand what you see.

Museum is unfortunately only average, but a courtyard is excellent. All exponents have also english description. Free parking is available.

ALZHIR - Akmola camp for the wives of traitors of Motherland - one of the largest camps of Soviet Union and one of the three "islands" of the "Gulag Archipelago". The camp was opened in the beginning of 1938, when it received the first stages of the prisoners - mostly members of the families of exceeded 18,000 convicts.

In 2007 at the former site of the correctional camp was opened the Museum and Memorial Complex of Victims of Political Repression and Totalitarianism, which you will visit during the tour. At the entrance to the museum there is “Arch of Grief”, and further are two compositions "Despair and Powerlessness" and "Fight and Hope" – in memory to the families forever separated by cruel time. The tunnel, where on the walls represented the tragic moments of parting with children, cruel and unfair court of the Three, a prison cell and a punishment cell, helps to plunge into the atmosphere of repressions.

The exposition of the museum is located on hall perimeter, that involves the visitor in a vicious circle and immerses in the historical past of Kazakhstan. At the end of excursion you will have an opportunity to watch 20-minute documentary

I took above from a Brochure as it aptly describes all fully. Really a sad place makes you open your eyes & think with a heavy heart what Missguided human beings can do to other Humanbeings. God forgive all and salve the pain of those who lost their loved ones.

Maybe it's not the most attractive place to visit when you're in Kazakhstan, but once to see is better than a hundred times to hear. Moreover the exhibition is more about pure facts than ideology, and it gives it strength ...
Maybe transport from Nur-Sultan is not quite easy, but it is good to go through it.

If you do not have a car it can be a bit challenging to approach this place. Locals aren't really good with the buses and they may send you to other places or other bus stops.

Anyway, the place itself tells you a lot, it's a nicely organised museum. They have audio guide facilities and even personal guide too. We found it was a bit expensive so we had an audio guide. It tells you what you need and broaden your horizon.

The time I spent a Alzhir was the most moving experience of my Kazakhstan adventure. We frequently talk about the Nazi prison camps and don't realize other countries also had them. This one was focused on the women's experience. These were wives, daughters, sisters, mothers of 'traitors to the the Motherland' under Stalin's reign. I was moved by the exhibits, personal histories and the beautiful and peaceful grounds.

It is not a convenient place to visit, but very much worth the effort. It is about a 40 minute ride from Astana by car. Although there are buses that travel from Astana to Alzhir, we were on a tight schedule, so we opted for a taxi to take us to Alzhir, wait and return us to Astana. Along the way, we were able to see aspects of the rural way of life in KZ. I would go again, and again.

The Museum is about 20 km SW from Astana. I visited it with a group of students, so we had our private bus but it is my understanding that you can get there by public transport as well.
The Museum is well done. It is not large (two floors) but there is a lot of info to read or listen to. You can either make a tour with one of the guides or take audioguides and listen to the explanations provided throughout the museum. The system is very modern and the explanation is in three languages (Kazakh, English, Russian). I first did the audiotour and then joined the tour and both were interesting. I particularly appreciated that the guide (a young lady) did not merely repeat what was in the audio-explanations but added other info.
Do not forget to watch the film about Alzhir, it is interesting.
I thought Alzhir was one of the many gulags from the Soviet times. Yet, this is not the case and it is in fact a very unique place. It was the only gulag in the USSR where women (mothers, sisters, wives and daughters ot "traitors of the homeland") were detained. The camp was opened in the late 1930s and operated during the Stalinist period.

We took Bus 305 from Turan Avenue (near the corner with Keruen Mall). We showed the bus driver the Memorial's website and were dropped off on the side of the 'highway' (near the garage) and had to walk around to the Memorial. Fortunately, we could see the Arch of Sorrow rising above the trees/bushes and used that as a direction marker. We paid for English audio guides (the website has an option to book a guided tour but it wasn't working) and paid to watch the short film which was informative and worth watching although unfortunately the English subtitles were difficult to follow (a better translator is required, as does the Memorial's website!). The first part of the memorial focuses heavily on the political history of Kazakhstan. The next level deals with the women who were imprisoned at Alzhir. Most exhibits have English translations which seemed to match the audio guide. Afterwards we walked into the nearby village (turn left out the main gate and keep walking down the road, probably about 1/2 km) to find where we could wait for a return bus. At the end of this road is a plaza with a supermarket straight ahead (we could only tell by the people coming out and some advertising above the door). The bus stop is located behind the supermarket, walk past the car park and cross the road. We also noticed private taxis waiting in the car park. This seemed to be the only 'official' bus stop on the way out of town - any other stops were made simply where people were waiting on the side of the road. We waited an hour, and the ride back to Astana took a while as Bus 305 made many stops along the way but we were interested to see life off the main highway.
