Our flight was delayed so we had a few hours to kill and this gave us an opportunity to visit the museum. Lovely building and a great deal to see covering all aspects of Inner Mongolia. There are some very interesting displays and artifacts from their nomadic history.

This museum is large and modern. There are many exhibitions and it is laid out such that it does a great job representing the history of Inner Mongolia. There is no entrance fee (make sure you have your ID/Passport) and it was not overly crowded on the days I was there. Highly recommend you visit this museum if you are... More

I loved visiting this museum and watching the exhibitions. It was very big and you could spend a large part of the day there. The bathrooms were also very clean, which can be a rarity in China, and the air conditioning felt wonderful for the hot summer months. Some of the museum had English, but not a lot, so that... More

Don't miss this museum if in Hohhot. The building is very impressive and the displays are interesting. Entrance is free of charge when showing an ID.

This is my third times to visit this museum. The museum was separated into several areas with difderent themes, such as the aerospace industry development of inner Mongolia, the history of inner Mongolia and their livelihoods. This is abgreat experience to visit it.

Many floors of great and interesting artefacts about Inner Mongolia starting from dinosaurs till space age. Definitely worth the visit. You can easily spend have a day there. Located half way between airport and city centre. Easy to jail a cab in front of the majestic stairs. Very interesting architecture. Good souvenir shop on ground floor and bookshop on second...

My wife and I visited the Inner Mongolia museum in May 2016. The entry was free as we had read, but you need to show your passport in order to receive a ticket. The museum building is quite unusual, dominated by a large sloping roof covered with fake grass to resemble the Mongolian grassland. The museum contains various exhibitions, with... More

Quite different to the other provincial museums this is more cultural than full of artifacts, but still interesting nevertheless. Shows how people lived and the rise of the Khan empire. Big museum, free entry as long as you have your passport, worth a visit.

It is a well-done up museum with an array of displays, ranging from cultural, anthropological and historical exhibits to fossils of the jurassic era. My admission was free of charge but please remember to bring an official ID or entry will not be permitted. It is relatively easy to reach and definitely worth the time and effort.

The English captions are lacking, the actual number of artifacts are quite low (which is actually reassuring, as most Chinese museums only have reproductions/fakes, a result of the cultural revolution), the communist propaganda section is inadvertently hilarious and the taxidermy section is so bad it's wonderful! However, you can actually learn a lot about the area and some ethnic groups... More
