  • All our stay in Mongolia, we would very much like to visit the Museum, and apparently due to inflated expectations, we were a little disappointed after his visit. A small museum, dinosaurs not so much amusement from the category "went out". Most likely, you will not even talk about it to their friends.

  • Enjoy the handful of dinosaurs on display. Probably took about 15mins to do a lap of the museum no bigger than my apartment. Whilst the dinosaur fossils are fascinating, the curatorship of the museum ...  more »
  • On territory of the Mongolia found many remains of dinosaurs. And here's a Dinosaur Museum in Ulan Bator seemed to us very humble. We read somewhere that the Museum is being renovated, and exploring Exposition opened one of the halls. You may have more luck, and you'll be taken to the Museum of dinosaurs after reconstruction. The centrepiece here takes skeleton tarbozavra Bataara. Around it presented interesting information about the lives of these dinosaurs. For example, the brain of these huge animals, which some scientists believe higher predators of its era, just miserable. But he not only the body, but the head is awesome. It's funny!

  • 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.
