Examine a vast collection of Mongolian cultural, archaeological, and scientific artifacts at National History Museum. Since its establishment in 1924, many Russian and American scholars have contributed to expanding and merging the ethnographical, historical, and archaeological departments of Mongolia, systematically preserving the nation's cultural heritage. As you roam the corridors, you can observe many interesting exhibits, such as dinosaur skeletons from the Gobi desert, volcano stones and meteorites, botany and animal life samples, and traditional garments. Each showcase has labels in Mongolian and English; you can also purchase a guidebook to learn about the museum's content more thoroughly.

It's the only national museum of Mongolia, therefore that should be both praised and taken into consideration! Thank you for letting me travel through your country, wild horses, starry nights.
I love the National Museum of Mongolia! Well described the Mongolia history from the Chenggis Khan time until the Democratic time now. Need to spend at least 2 hours if want to look in detailed.
