This excellent museum is tucked away on a side street in the city center. Unremarkable from the outside, and with an unassuming entrance, the two floors of art include many outstanding examples of Mongolia art. A number of intricate, beautiful wood carvings. Horses, understandably, are...More

This was a nice salary to visit. The entrance fee was $2 US. It gives you a little more of the history of Mongolia but some very nice art work to view as well.

I don’t mind art galleries if they are tastefully done. I also like to get a sense of the culture while I’m traveling but this tired run down gallery is not worth a long visit. I was told not to take pictures so that turned...More

Don't think modern art as in "Abstract" (Though there is some of that). Think art being done recently in Mongolia. This museum has everything from contemporary wood carving to Stalinist era soviet-realism. The mix makes for an entertaining visit even if you are not "into"...More

Small and cheap gallery just off the main square. Some interesting works but the majority are pastiches. Gallery interior looks rather tired. Worth a visit if you have some spare time to fill.

and worth paying two bucks to support the gallery - and $5 to buy a book of postcards of the artwork. Over two floors of artwork with the current exhibition featuring nomadic life. Mainly paintings, but sculptures, ceramics and woodwork on display, documenting social, cultural...More

This museum has a wide assortment of works that are interesting and beautiful. It needs an "angel" to put the money into improving the display so that everything is well lit and clearly visible.

It is a bit of a search in this vaste building. Entrance fee is minimum, the display is nice and well organised. Be surprised.

The biggest challenge with this museum is finding it. It is off what seems to be an internal courtyard for the 'Cultural Palace' - which faces on to the main square. We got to into the inner courtyard from the north side of the Cultural...More

The galleries are spacious, the collection varied. The building is old, but inviting, and works are well displayed. Paintings are quality pieces. The sculptures are also nice, but difficult to see due to lack of lighting in the cases. Lovely wood and ivory carvings. Curators...More
