Free, great ride

For free ride, it's totally worth it. The museum is quite large and there are quite a lot of things to see, from dinosaurs to ceramic stuffs.

There were lots of exhibits and a lot of information pertaining to Inner Mongolia, which was what we came for. We were amused when our guide initially suggested spending 5 hours touring the museum, we suggested 2 hours at the most and didn't even spend that. Each exhibit had one piece of English information upon entering, and for some that... More

A modern museum that is worth the visit. Considering it is free! A good spread of thematic exhibition space, from birth of earth to dinosaurs, space exploration n technological progress, and most importantly, history of Genkhis Khan, Mongolian arts n culture. Felt like the National History Museum in NYC. Grab a public bus to the museum for only 1rmb.

The Inner Mongolia Museum is ENORMOUS. Four floors of halls full of the province's rich history and culture. Although many exhibits were replicas, it did not take away from the awesome experience. Special mention of the Genghis Khan hall, it was fantastic. And all of it is free! Definitely worth your time.

The interior was impressively large and spacious, as were the shear number and content of exhibits shown, though some (if, not many) were (likely) reproductions rather than originals. The guides provided spoke clearly in Putonghua, but we're not extensively knowledgable outside of scripted dribble common to most museums and such staff! The museum itself was centrally located and easy to... More

The infrastructure of the museum is undeniably impressive. But the content inside didn't surprise me much. In fact, it seemed to me that a lot of the things there were fake and made-up. It wasn't worth the visit for me.
