A significant event in the life of the museum was the opening in the Year of Children - May 18, 2022, on the International Day of Museums - of the Children's Coworking Center with the sponsorship of “KMF-Demeu” Fund and “KMF” microfinance organization. The work of the Center is aimed at implementing children's educational, cultural and leisure programs. There are books, various games, visual materials, puzzles, paintings, a drawing board, stationery for children's creativity and others in a cozy, beautifully decorated large, bright room. The little ones can play with toys, assemble puzzles, draw, and sculpt.

The “Lesson in the Museum” project is being implemented jointly with the Almaty Education Department. The main goals of the project are to use the cultural and educational capabilities of the museum in in-depth study of school subjects such as history, Kazakh language and literature, geography, biology, etc., to promote the formation of schoolchildren’s interest in studying the history of their country, as well as the moral and patriotic education of the younger generation.

The museum lessons provided are closely linked to the school curriculum. At the same time, the museum exhibit acts not as an illustration of acquired knowledge, but as a direct “source of knowledge.” Thus, the originality of the educational process (museum environment) stimulates not only the cognitive interests of students, but also contributes to their comprehensive development.

Lessons are taught on the following topics: “My Homeland is Kazakhstan” and “The Constitution is the foundation of the country”, dedicated to the Republic Day and Constitution Day, “Language is a spiritual wealth”, dedicated to the Day of Languages of the People of Kazakhstan, “The Great Hero of the Nation”, dedicated to 1 50 anniversary of the organizer of the national liberation uprising of the Kazakh people in 1916 Amangeldy Imanov, “Ancient Kazakhstan and tribal alliances”, “Empress Tomiris of the Saka”, “One of the valuable items of the nation is the whip”, "Medieval cities along the Great Silk Road", "Kazakh jewelry", "In the world of fairy tales" , "History of the Huns" "Kazakh traditions" "One-national musical instruments of the Ancestors" and others.


From June 15 to August 1, the summer museum camp “MYSEUM FOR KIDS” is running at the Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

Then, for schoolchildren, museum teachers conduct excursions around the halls of the museum, educational lessons on the history, culture, ethnography of the Kazakh people, master classes in painting and decorative and applied arts, sports tournaments in the national games “asyk atu”, “bes tas”, “togyzkumalak” ", and in the cinema hall young visitors to the museum can watch fairy tales, animated films and feature films.
