The National Museum of Mongolia, located just next to the Chinggis Khan Square, contains a wide variety of artefacts from ancient and modern Mongolian culture.
I only spent an hour exploring the museum, which is spread over three floors and contains everything from ancient weapons and jewellery to Mongolian horse riding equipment. My favourite section had to be the collection of traditional Mongolian clothing through the ages – they have such incredible details and bright colours. I also enjoyed the traditional instrument exhibition and fantastic collection of traditional saddlery.
The museum has information available in a variety of languages, including English, which really helped to understand where some of the items had come from and what their uses were.
