#1 of 21 in Museums in Mongolia
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.

  • Well worth the admission fee and time spent. Professionally organized with fascinating details about Mongolia up to the present. Certainly elucidate Ghenghis Khan, the Turkic tribes, and others who contributed so much, positively or otherwise, most of the known world.
  • Decent tour of Mongolian history, although a bit cheesy at times. Paying extra for a photographer's permit was almost worth the 10,000T. Some nice trinkets in the gift shop.
  • Mongolia's history is as vibrant, majestic, and beautiful as it is today. From the time when dinosaurs roamed the land, to the time when Chinggis Khaan rose to power, the history of this amazing country is sure to astonish the minds of viewers and cultural enthusiasts.
  • Exhibitions and cultural and historical heritages are amazing. You can rent audio guide equipment. But administration of museum and staffs are not nice. For me, its so sad to know museum guides are only available for group visitors more than 10 people with pre-booking
  • It is helpfull to learn about 2000 year old tradition od Mongolian statehood. Give you good knowledge of country's tradition and nomad lifestyle. It has 11 halls including the Ancient history, Ancient States, Traditional clothes and jewelry, Mongolian Empire, Culture, Traditional lifestyle, Socialist Mongolia and Democratic Mongolia, eventually temporary exhibition hall.
