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.

This museum is truly fantastic. It is one of the landmark of the city. The museum is closed on Mondays and the entrance is usually free. The architecture of the museum building is simply unbelievable, a work-of-art. The exhibits inside the museum are also varied, very nice, and interesting. There are sections with dinosaurs, some about the fauna of the... More

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.
