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.

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.
