  • There are a handful of different dinosaur fossils here, probably less than 20. The English information was helpful and interesting. You might spend less than an hour here.

  • Very small but if you need to kill 30 mins and want to learn something about dinosaur bones, this place has you covered. The displays have English and are well done. It is just very small so be prepared.
  • Cool museum, albeit small. The guy at the front first said 2000 tögrög (even the ticket says 2000) but refused to let me in unless I paid 3000. I paid the extra 1000 tögrög finally just to get the guy to quit hassling me.
  • Good but too small. Best thing is the Tabrosaur skeleton.
  • The smallest muzeum I have ever been to, nonetheless probably the best dinosaurs one. Spent like 30 min there
  • Very nice place, you can see dinosaur skeletons , fossils and also dinosaurs eggs, however it is quite small.
