  • Ulaanbaatar - National Museum of Mongolian History - Mongolia

The National Museum of Mongolian History was founded in 1991 and is located to the west of the Government Building in the city centre. The exhibits of the museum show the history and culture of Mongols from ages as early as the Stone Age and right up to the modern days. The 15,000 exhibits of the museum are divided into sections such as Ancient History, Ancient States Period, Traditional Clothing and Jewellery, Mongol Empire, Manchu Period, Traditional Mongolian Culture and Life and the Socialist and Democratic Periods. The museum is a must-see thing if you're in Ulaanbaatar as it is very well done and well presented. I spent a good couple of hours here and took many photos, some of which can be seen in one of my travelogues.

Open: Everyday between 9.30am and 6pm. Admission: T2,500 and camera charge T10,000.
