The museum was interesting although most of it was under construction. Great exhibition on WWI. All exhibitions had signs in english which was great. However, not all staff could speak English

The museum is close to the square. We enjoyed our visit, was surprised to have to pay extra to take photos but still reasonably priced. Would recommend a visit, informative and interesting.

We enjoyed our visit to this museum to see Mongolia through the ages. Lots of exhibits from different eras, our guide gave us a rundown on all the different exhibits, glad we went to see it.

I typically don’t like being in museums. This one was easy to move through quickly and it’s in chronological order which made a nice overview of Mongolia’s history. I especially liked the clothing and the more recent history floors.
