This object contains almost nothing interesting or special to watch. Indeed it is not a must visit place in Astana. Also keep in mind bad service from personnel.

Interesting architecture from Norman Foster. Lifts travel inside slant sides of pyramid, rather than up centre apex. Very beautiful stained glass with doves (of peace) at top. Only visible from inside. You have to be guided - included in modest entry fee. Tour takes 20 minutes. Wheelchair access limited.

The pyramid building is located nearby many attractions places like the national museum, president memorial and big mosque; so can't be missed at all! Also can enjoy nice city view up hill location of the pyramid.

A lovely young lady gave tourists a short tour of the opera house and top floor. I love the pigeon glasses on the top floor, as well as the plants on the wall all the way to the top floor.

I've tried four times over three years to see this building. This year, there was an exhibition on and the entrance price (2000 tenge) was double the usual one and did not allow access to the main parts of the building. Staff were unhelpful. Ah well - maybe next time!

This building represents bringing people together, and is as striking outside as it is unusual inside. I would like to visit again as it is constantly being developed and filled inside with many artefacts and spaces celebrating the many cultures who have chosen Kazakhstan as home.
