The Inner Mongolia Museum is a regional museum in the city of Hohhot in Inner Mongolia, in north China.
This museum was founded on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, in 1957. The original building, expressive of local minority characteristics, is located at the intersection of Xinhua Street and Zhongshan Road in the heart of Hohhot City, the capital of the autonomous region. Half a century later, in 2007, a newer and 10 times bigger modern museum was constructed about 5 kilometers to the east, located at the intersection of Xinhua East Street and East 2nd Ring Road. All the exhibition objects were moved to the new building, while the original building still remained open to public, for temporary exhibitions, such as a calligraphy exhibition as of 2014.
The Museum has many objects relating to ethnic history in its collections. Among these quite a few are rare treasures seldom seen in China, especially the artifacts relating to the northern tribes called Xiongnu, Xianbei, Qidan, Mongolians and others.
The museum in particular offers an insight into the history and traditions of the Mongolian people exhibiting paraphernalia used by nomadic Mongols, including saddles, costumes, archery and polo equipment and a ger (a portable tent used by Central Asian nomads).

  • Nice museum with several topics. Well worth a visit.
  • 有4個樓層,從遠古到近代介紹蒙古族、遼、女真等民族,包括歷史、文化、國土版圖、服飾、文字、葬禮,還包括許多佛教聖物,館藏非常豐富,適合花1-2小時以上看展覽。 影片非常精緻生動,可以補足觀眾的想像,台灣人大概難以想像在內蒙古博物院的體驗質感如此好。 1樓的紀念品部除了賣各種食物伴手禮、也可以參考駱駝油這項特色產品,還可以寫明信片,也有賣郵票,能寄台灣。
