(120+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Explore Mongolian culture and nature at Inner Mongolia Museum, with its interesting exterior made to resemble the vast steppes of the region. Four floors exhibit the traditions and history of Mongolian tribes, displaying horse saddles, weapons, and tents used by a culture known for its war culture. In addition to the artifacts, the museum displays a rich collection of fossils and dinosaur remains found in the region. Highlights include the complete skeleton of the extinct wooly rhinoceros, and a section dedicated to the most famous Mongol leader, Genghis Khan. English captions are brief and limited to the museum's main sections. After checking out the exhibits, visit the souvenir shop on the ground floor and the bookshop on second. Put Inner Mongolia Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hohhot vacation planner.
