THis museum is reallz large.The major part of the exhibition is the prehistory -dinosaurs etc. and nice exhibition about space launches from Inner Mongolia-so there are models of the spaceships etc.there are also differet kinds if the temporary exhibitions. It not a big deal, but its nice to see.

I visited on a Saturday and was very impressed by the museum. I'm a bit of a space and dinosaur buff and loved the exhibits. It's worth noting that not many exhibits have English translations and those that have been translated have been done so to clearly convey specific points to foreigners. On the day that I visited I was... More

The building is amazing and inside are floors on inner Mongolia and a brilliant dinosaur collection. The space section was also fantastic plus free entry. Awesome.

As a museum lover, this one was fantastic for several reasons--free entry (somewhat of a rarity in China), amazing cafeteria food (sadly or impressively, at this cafeteria, I had the best Mongolian food of my whole stay in Hohhot), super modern (the architecture and the little robots inside), and super interesting (particularly the dinosaur exhibit, the exhibits about Mongolian landscapes,...

The Inner Mongolian Museum displays science and technology rather than cultural heritage which was not what we expected. If we had known we would have geven it a miss. On the other hand, there were a few spectacular sights from dinosaurs to space craft.

Travelling with your family? Then don't miss the Inner Mongolia Museum for one of the best dinosaur exhibits you've ever seen complete with videos, skeletons, environmental recreations, the works! Level 3 & 4's exhibitions on Mongolian culture and gold also not to be missed. Unfortunately, a poor selection of books in English in the book shop, and unless you're looking... More

I quite liked it. Plus, free is great! I went a couple of weeks ago so it was definately the "off season", and it seemed like a lot of the restaurants and tea areas were closed. However, the exhibits were really cool, and there were very few people there. I loved the Mongolian exhibit that showed the clothes, etc. I... More

Pleasantly surprised by this museum. Entry is free. The modern building is absolutely enormous and must have cost a fortune. English language captions were sometimes prone to rather charming quirks of translation, but generally of an unusually high standard for a provincial Chinese museum. A series of galleries over several floors covers everything from Inner Mongolia's diverse range of ethnic... More
