This is a great place to go to understand the country's history. Great for a cold or rainy day too. 8000T to get in and we weren't charged the 10000T for photography, so we didn't take any pictures.

This museum is not up to western standards of accessibility or temperature control, but the exhibits are unique and rather extensive. We wished it had been cooler inside so that we could have spent more time looking at the unique exhibits.

We visited the museum expecting it to be a quick visit. The exhibits are excellent and I learned a lot. We did not have a guide which may have been helpful, however the signs were in English.

Apparently the authorities can't decide whether to renovate the unnsafe building or move the museum. A great pity as Mongolia has real treasures in its dinosaur collection.

You can get lost in time walking through this wonderful museum, walking out with a fairly good knowledge of Mongolian history, culture, ethnic groups, etc.

This Museum is awesome and not to be missed when visiting Mongolia. You will know a fair bit about Mongolian history when you leave.
