This museum flows really well and gives a brief but very informative history of Mongolia. A little bit of everything - artifacts, costumes, Khan family history and much more. A must see in Ulaanbaatar. Good for all visitors including those with children.

The ancient history and Soviet/post Soviet rooms are fascnating and well laid out in English as well as Mongolian, but the rest is rather like a theatrical costume warehouse!

A must see while in Ulaanbaatar, well put together and very interesting. Starting from the days of the cave man going up to present day.
