We arrived early afternoon and walked a half hour to the museum. It is very well organized and traffic flows well. Very interesting displays and great to learn about Inner Mongolia before we began our two week adventure through the territory.

This visit to the Inner Mongolia Museum gives me a head start to enjoy the real 'Treasure of Mongolia'. Ancient ornaments and artifacts are beautifully handcrafted and preserved for the next generation to appreciate. So much to see and learn about Mongolia, worth going and is free.

The museum visit surprisingly turned out to be a discovery journey about Inner Mongolia. After the visit, I learned that they have found many dinosaurs fossils in IM and that they have an aerospace program and rocket launch pad in the desert there. It dismisses my preconception that IM is only all about grasslands, yurts and horses. As we didn't... More

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.

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
