First stop for us after arriving into Ulan Bataar. This complex is deceptively huge, so much information and artifacts dating back centuries. Also a hall featuring Mongolia today and it's vision for the future - absolutely wonderful to see. Highly recommend that anyone who comes to the city at the very least visits here.

Very nice depiction of Mongolian culture and history. Several stories of artifacts. Nicely laid out and could easily spend several hours browsing. Well worth a visit.

Highly recommend anyone who has interest in Mongolia. Our English guide was very knowledgle. You should expect to to spend about two hours there. It is located 2 minutes from Chinghis Khan sq.

We only had a couple of hours, which was enough to see everything but not enough to do justice to the exhibits. Tells the whole story of Mongolia and is a must see.

The museum is centrally located next to the square. We payed 8.000 MNT per person as entrance fee. The museum was extremely useful to us (we went there on our 1st day in the country), as we learned a lot before our several excursions. In the museum you will walk through the different era of Mongolian history.

We enjoyed this visit thoroughly as its a small but well laid out museum. It gives a snapshot of Mongolia old and new. Keep an hour at least.

Was a little unclear about the history of Mongolia and this museum helped put the timelines in perspective.

The museum seemed kind of hastily thrown together, including the descriptions of exhibits. About 95% of the exhibits had a label or description in Mongolian, about 70% had English, the entire first room had German (but not English), and there were a few other exhibits with miscellaneous other languages. There were some interesting artifacts from the past, but I definitely... More
