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).
