The National Museum of Mongolian History
The National Museum of Mongolian History Ulaanbaatar Reviews
Excellent introduction for a trip through Mongolia Aug 20, 2011
The National Museum of Mongolian History has several floors of absolutely beautiful items, but no matter how much your fingers itch, you are not allowed to take pictures inside. It is a large collection that forms an excellent introduction for a trip through Mongolia, so take at least two hours to see everything.
The first floor of this excellent museum shows items of the earliest period of Mongolia, the time of the Huns , the Uygurs and the Turks. The second floor shows the unique Mongolian costumes of different ethnic groups and regions in Mongolia. The third floor is for the biggest part about the legendary Genghis Khan and his Mongol hordes, the rest is about Modern Mongolia. There was the struggle for independence, communism, the revolution and eventually democracy since 1990.
