No one really knows where the body of Genghis Khan is buried, but this spot has an attractive museum about the famed leader and the Mongolian culture of that time. It is not easy access from downtown Baotou, but if you have a car or...More

The mausoleum complex is nice and clean. The exhibits had quite a bit of information in English, which was appreciated. It is important to note, however, that Genghis Khan's remains are not located here - their location is unknown. And many of the items and...More

This is a nice mausoleum if you want to pay respects to the great leader ghengis Khan. It's a beautiful building and you learn lots about his history.

If you find yourself in Baotou, this is a must-see. Ornate and impressive; lots of interesting historical context. The exhibit detailing Ghengis Khan's "punitive expeditions" is pretty interesting.

Although a couple of hours out of Baotou it is well worth making the effort to visit. It is outstanding with a highlight being the Mongolian Horsemen providing demonstrations of their art.

The mausoleum is not in a convenient location travel-wise and it certainly isn't informative or that interesting. If you really happen to be in the area, you might enjoy seeing the buildings and taking some pictures. I would rather spend my time in the desert...More

Interesting memorial site dedicated to Genghiz Khan. If you love trivia or are a history buff, you will love this place. Lots of statues and exhibits, but nothing interactive. Colourful with great photo opportunities.
