As a museum lover, this one was fantastic for several reasons--free entry (somewhat of a rarity in China), amazing cafeteria food (sadly or impressively, at this cafeteria, I had the best Mongolian food of my whole stay in Hohhot), super modern (the architecture and the little robots inside), and super interesting (particularly the dinosaur exhibit, the exhibits about Mongolian landscapes, and the 2nd floor exhibits on Mongolian culture and history). I suggest supplementing your visit with listening to Crashcourse History's podcast on Genghis Kahn. We visited the museum, then went on an organized tour (with Anda Guesthouse) to the grasslands and desert, and going to the museum first was definitely a good idea because it gave us good preparation and knowledge for the tour. In sum, amateur paleontologists and Mongolian history aficionados, welcome! Don't forget to try the food, seriously.
