- Great introduction to the history of Mongolia. The top two floors are particularly interesting with a beautiful array of national costumes. The only drawback would be the lack of English information. An english speaking guide through this museum would have been great.
Well worth a visit.Written 23 October 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The cost is now 15,000 for foreign entry. A great place to visit but a knowledgeable guide is a must. Beautiful architecture.Written 13 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Modern building just behind the House of Parliament .
It was open only one year ago and contains more than 10.000 objects distributed on several floors to show the history of Mongolia and the greatest empire ever built by Genghis Khan (1162-1227)

- If you visit Manzshir please make an effort to see the small museum that is inside the renovated building at the center of the ruined complex. Sometimes it is locked, if that is the case try to find the key holder (the people living in the ger on site, nearby). There is a small entrance charge (somewhat negotiable) and the museum takes only a few mins to explore. It is worth it, in my opinion, for the original photos of the site pre-purge.Written 26 February 2018
- This is free and a really interesting mix of historical information and artifacts. Some of the things in the museum seem random (like some government person's old cell phone), but some are really interesting, and the random ones add a unique feel to the displays. I'm not sure when the museum is open, though. It's not open everyday; there must be a schedule for it, but we haven't figured that out yet.Written 26 June 2018
- The museum gives a glimpse into the career and life of one of the great soviet heroes of WWII. It comprises photos, documents, weapons and uniforms linked to the great man.
Zhukov is most famous for his role in defeating Nazi Berlin and ending WWII, but a visit to this museum gives an insight into the General's humble beginnings and his early role in Mongolia where he was stationed for a while.
English language translations of the exhibits are limited so bring your own interpreter.
I love this museum and heartily recommend it to history buffs and students of WWII.Written 18 February 2017
- We enjoyed the visit to this humble museum in the middle of busy Ulaanbaatar. It has but three rooms, but many interesting artifacts. A guide is included in the admission, a mere 1500 tugrik. Highlights were many old photos of the city, Soviet era paintings, and large vintage maps. There is also an exquisitely carved elephant ivory showing city landmarks. We went for the special exhibit of photographs from 1909-1911 taken by a Frenchman. For a quick sample of life in the city of UB, this place is recommended.Written 2 February 2017
- This is a fantastic modern museum in the heart of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, celebrating the rich history of the Mongolian people. You start on the first floor with prehistoric Mongolia and work up the floors through the Mongolian Empires with displays and paintings. Give yourself a few hours and take your time to appreciate this magnificent history we know so little about in the western world.Written 22 October 2023
