History Museum
Examine a vast collection of Mongolian cultural, archaeological, and scientific artifacts at National History Museum. Since its establishment in 1924, many Russian and American scholars have contributed to expanding and merging the ethnographical, historical, and archaeological departments of Mongolia, systematically preserving the nation's cultural heritage. As you roam the corridors, you can observe many interesting exhibits, such as dinosaur skeletons from the Gobi desert, volcano stones and meteorites, botany and animal life samples, and traditional garments. Each showcase has labels in Mongolian and English; you can also purchase a guidebook to learn about the museum's content more thoroughly. Put National History Museum into our Ulaanbaatar tourist route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Visitors from South Korea once or twice each year, in conjunction with the historical perspective and worldview foundations of Central Asian nomads, the change can be seen far and wide until the modern Mongolia is the only place. The legs are a little painful, but in the back of the third floor of a modern Pavilion look through Mongolia up to today, as well as the Driftwood of shamanism, Buddhism, the Dalai Lama since the market economy of socialism and colonial sentiments, selection of Phil little kite is understandable. The children were a little might be boring. Korean Guide, but if you need to get the help of the guide in English. Tickets too expensive.

  • Well organised, must see museum. You can learn about Mongolian history of almost all historical generation in brief from here
  • Succinct museum of Mongolia in 3 floors. 8,000 MNT for a ticket. Well worth the money. About an hour and a half to see all the exhibits.
  • Great overview of Mongolian history. The curation and artifacts available were both worth seeing. I particularly like seeing the costumes, jewelry and every day items of days gone buy. I attended during a heat wave of summer and wished there was air conditioning for both my sake and the sake of the artifacts.
  • Very complete and with english panels. Amazing. Reserve yourself 3-4 hours.
  • Great overview of Mongolian history from the Bronze Age to the present. Often general histories of Mongolian focus on Genghis Khan and his successors, but this museum presents a more balanced and comprehensive overview. There is a traditional costume display that gives a nice overview of the various peoples who live in the country.
