This is one of the more interesting museums I've visited in China. There is a lot of information (and in English) of the nomadic lifestyle and of course Genghis Khan. I found the displays interesting and informative. I recommend taking time to explore this museum even if you are on a short stay.

Firstly, you have to appreciate the architecture of the museum as it's beautiful to visit just for that reason alone. As for the museum itself it's not exactly clear flowing in terms of exhibit layouts but the content and history is brilliant. For a country that's so enriched with a long history, this is a more detailed and refreshing collection... More

This beautiful museum is centrally located, easy to get to in Hohot. On any day you will see families, students and many local people enjoying the clean surroundings, flying kites, watching live dance and theatre displays. I was in Hohot for several months and went to the museum many times to meet friends, to wander the exhibits, and marvel at... More

A modern museum wirh great building and fantastic exhibitions. Free admission. There were guided museum tours. However, many people were wandering around and speaking loudly in exhibition rooms.. We visited the museum on Sunday. Quite noisy and chaotic. Some well-planned visitor routes to make the flow patterns smooth is highly needed.

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.
