  • I and all my friends absolutely admire the Museum of them. Dzanabazara! This unusual museum with an interesting history and unique collection of exhibits. He left an indelible impression in our hearts, even though we were previously heard and it and are familiar with the works of Dzanabazara issued in the State. Hermitage sculpture, but what shows in the Museum. Dzanabazara-this stunning works of Buddhist art! Really liked the exhibition dedicated to calligraphy. The Museum staff is very attentive and professional, Museum Director Ms. SARANTUA Urtnasan unusually hospitable people, talented Organizer and an expert in his field. We had a large group of tourists from Russia, Europe, Latin America, Australia and all were very happy to visit a famous Museum. I recommend to visit the wonderful Mongolia and visit this wonderful muzj!

  • Great museum filled with bronze age finds to modern. Great place to kill 1-2 hours
  • One of the most beautiful museum in Ulaanbaatar but unfortunately very poorly curated. The audio guides were not engaging at all - as a result our grouo had a very unappreciative and a boring impression towards all the artifacts.
  • It is a small but nice museum, look close at the paintings from daily life.
  • If you're interested in learning about Mongolia's spiritual history, this museum is an important part. Most of the art housed here is from Zanbazar, a key religious leader in the 1600s who brought about the proliferation of Tibetan Buddhism in Mongolia. If possible, get a guide who can answer questions and point out the more interesting elements of the different art pieces.
  • If you lover of arts, u must visit this place. Charming illustrations and sculptures exhibited here. Also the museum shop is pretty good!
