  • 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!
