- The complex consists in six temples originally occupied by the brother of the ruler the Eighth Bogd Jetsun Dampa Khan, Choijin Lama Luvsankhaidav, who was the state oracle.
The complex looks like an ancient temple but it was built in 1908.

- A trip to Ulaanbaatar is incomplete without visiting this museum. The museum houses 6,000 puzzles from the simplest to the most complicated one, that human can imagine, and it is so difficult to solve the simplest one, so then imagine, if it would be possible to solve the most complex one.
We met the inventor of the puzzles, who has so far created 5,000 puzzles in his lifetime. At the age of 80, he is still young at mind and very humble. He came out of his office to greet us and was quite happy to see us taking interest in his puzzle museum.
The fee is very reasonable considering, what it offers in return. The guide speaks fluent English and says can solve between 5 and 10 puzzles out of the total of 6,000 puzzles, which the inventor himself can do.
Apart from puzzles, it houses some amazing paintings, that has one image in day light and totally different as the light goes off (a must see). In addition it houses some of the amazing amazing Chess boards that one can’t imagine.
The inventor is not only creative at making puzzles, but is also an artist and sculptor. I just wondered looking at him and trying to figure out what his brain would be like.
A must must visit to this museum, be it hail, rain or storm.Written 11 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- An interesting museum. Greeted by tanks, guns, and a fighter jet at the entrance - signifying a country once strong with its military presence. Museum them provides an insightful understanding since the days of Genghis Khan to the Russian influence era and to the democratic Mongolia that it is today. Guns, mortars, grenades,Uniforms, offices of high ranking officials, paintings, evolution of the Mongolian state emblems, plaques honouring the citizens / Military Officers. To dwell deep into the history of Mongolia's Military will take hours AND with a translator. There aren't any English Guides available and if there aren't any Translators around, then one relies merely on the information cards at each display. It somehow looses the impact of the history that it is to portray. Museum is cold during Winter Months, a bit damp, but the lightings done pretty well. A place recommend to visit but with a Translator, else it will be just a stroll through the Museum. Personally for me, I enjoyed the visit and the opportunity to snap a few photos. And since the Museum wasn't crowded at all during the Winter months, I was able to spend more time on displays that interests me most without causing a queue !Written 14 August 2016This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The museum is inside a shop costumes. It's small but countain a lot of pieces of collection. And the most interesting, a very old yurt with all the elements that compose it.Written 13 September 2018
- Unlike the UK, Russia and Mongolia are proud to show off their old locomotives instead of locking them away in museums. Unfortunately the park gates were locked, but it was still possible to get a good look. Probably recommended to rail fans only.Written 15 November 2018

Exhibiting at the invitation of the Society of Artists in Berlin, the show of 55 Munch paintings enraged some Society members who objected to the "hideous and common pictures". The show closed after one week, and Munch was an overnight celebrity. His exhibition subsequently traveled to Dusseldorf, Cologne, Copenhagen, Dresden, andWritten 29 August 2017
