The idea of creating a new national museum in the capital of Kazakhstan was voiced by the head of state on March 17, 1998 at an expanded meeting of the state commission for the year of national unity and national history. In accordance with the instructions of the President of Kazakhstan dated June 13, 2008, the Astana Akimat and the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Kazakhstan launched practical steps to create an international museum.

Of these, more than 14,000 square meters occupy exhibition space, 5,000 square meters - the depository. The museum building houses expositions of ancient and medieval history, modern history, gold, ethnography, Independent Kazakhstan, Astana, and modern art. The museum also has facilities for temporary exhibitions, restoration workshops, laboratories, libraries with a reading room, and conference rooms. The new national history museum is the largest in Central Asia. In the halls of the museum are collected archaeological, ethnographic, historical and cultural monuments of Kazakhstan - from the beginning of ancient history to the present day.
