Museum of History and Local Lore of Kanimekh district was established on April 30, 1997. If at the beginning of its activity he kept only 300 exhibits, today there are over three thousand ancient lithographs, rare manuscripts and antiquities.
In Uzbekistan, one of the priority areas of public policy is the study and promotion of the cultural heritage of the people, the preservation of its identity. We introduce visitors to the Kazakh and Karakalpak culture, the history of the origin and development of the Kanimekh district, pioneers, outstanding personalities, memorable places. For example, in the north-western part of Kanimekh is the fortress of Chardara. In 1973, archeologists from Tashkent excavated in the lower layers of the fortress found ceramic products and household items. Thus, they established that Chardara began to be built in the middle of the first millennium BC and is considered the same age as Samarkand. Found tools are the property of our museum and the region as a whole.
We have other rare and priceless exhibits. In the hall there is a yurt museum adapted for the low ceiling.
The corner of nature reflects the unique appearance of the flora and fauna of our region. This exposition is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the inhabitants of the lakes – Tudakul and majestic Aidarkul.
