    Quite centrally located, not like one of those too overwhelming Museum. I think they had a good presentation of Mongolia arts.  more »

    Some of the art is extraordinary - particularly the appliqué for me - but it is all Buddhist art so if you don't like mandalas with lots and lots going on, this is not for you.  more »

    This is a good choice for 1-2 hour visit to see Mongolian art and culture, some nice paintings as well  more »

Where to stay in Ulaanbaatar

The capital city of Ulaanbaatar doesn't disappoint when it comes to its choice of accommodations, with a range of styles and types to choose from. The usual place to look lies to the northeast of the main train station, in the central district that surrounds Chinggis Khaan Square. Luxury and non-luxury chain hotels, some storied older hotels, and a variety of fairly standard options abound across this central district, close to the main urban attractions. Dotted throughout are a number of guesthouses, providing value for money mid-range and budget options, including some offering shared "gers" (traditional Mongolian sleeping tents).
