This would have been a nice museum if they didn´t try to rip-off the tourists wanting to take photos. First there was an entrance fee (reasonable) and we went on a guided tour that was included. Unfortunately the guide spoke very poor English and was...More

I’m not going to give a good rating for a place that doesn’t allow you to take photos! It is ridiculous. First we were conned as this place was to be part of our city tour but then they said it was closed. We went...More

This indoor/outdoor complex has a lot of really precious artifacts from the fairly recent Bogd Khan era. Although there were no English explanations, the icons, art work and artifacts are fascinating. Np photos allowed inside.

Lots of Buddists artefacts. When tired of them go to the winter palace where you can see how Bogd Khan, the last emperor of Mongolia lived. It is an astonishing story. Very high price for taking pictures in the museum - 50 000 MNT.

A beautiful complex of buildings from the late XIX and early XX century, featuring a collection of statues in gold and copper, utensils, clothing, houseware and other surprises used by the Bod Khan. Souvenir store is well stocked, although items are excessively expensive. They charge...More

The Soviet regime in Mongolia had destroyed most of UB's historical edifices and landmarks. Arguably one of the major remains of the pre-Soviet era. It's worth visiting if you are travelling to UB and the Museum of Bogd Khan in the compound is quite appealing....More
