History Museum 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.

  • The ticket is about 3-5dollars but exhibitions are totally well-organized and beautiful. It contains the history of the first humans settled in Mongolia to nowadays
  • 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.
