Everyone who comes to UB must visit here. Several hours are needed and well worth it. The displays are well presented and the history here is something most westerners will not know much about. Which makes it all the more interesting to read and see about.

If you have a day or two in UB, make it a point to visit this museum. It is worth the visit. The museum was recently renovated. The 'No to Death Penalty" sculpture near the entrance definitely makes a statement. The museum is spread over 3 floors and charts Mongolia's history from stone age to 2014. As compared to most...

The National History Museum of Mongolia is very close to the impressive Government Palace. This multi storied museum is considered one of the leading museums in Mongolia, specializing in Mongolian culture and heritage. The ethnographic collection has significant displays of the traditional dress of various Mongolian ethnic groups.

This was a great way to learn more about the history of Mongolia. I had done some research prior to my travels, but this brought it to life. You do have to pay extra if you want to take pictures (10,000 MNT, about US$5 which is equivalent to the entry fee).

The National History Museum is a nice surprise. They have extensive exhibits that cover Mongolia's long history, and many of the descriptions are in English as well as Mongolian. I wasn't expecting much in the way of variety or interest, and I ended up enjoying my time there greatly, wish we could stay longer.

This Nomadic country's people are marvelous and the best asset! It is now trying to get ready for more tourism. The Museum is a step in the right direction. Mongolia has a long history but much of it has been destroyed, as far as visual presentation. Hence, the Museum is a plus. Visit it!
