The former winter palace of the last king, now turned into a museum. The exterior is not very impressive. The treasures are inside the palace, the gem stones adorned thrones, the furniture and the clothings of the king and queen were especially impressive. Stable lined...More

Another good place to visit in Ulaambataar. There are some lovely pieces of authentic buddhist art and iconography that survived the cultural purge. This can be a little tricky to find in situ in Mongolia so definitely worth a visit. It's a little pricey and...More

This is a visual delight, and a must see within UB as it give great insight into the history, cultures and traditions. As mentioned in other reviews, there is an extra fee for taking photos. Thus seems to be very standard in Mongolia.

A great historical site and place to visit. Very interesting exhibits. I especially enjoyed the clothes the king and queen wore, very beautifully made.

A wonderful museum situated not too far from the city center. 10 minutes by cab, less than 30 minutes walk from the central square. Unlike other museums in Ulaanbaatar, the museum also doubles as a former residence of the last king of Mongolia. Unique in...More

The Palace is about 2km from Central Ulaanbaatar, 12000MNT by taxi or 500mnt by bus (taxis easier because unless you speak Mongolian catching a bus is not easy at all!) and is definitely worth heading out to. Friendly staff in the ticket office- entrance will...More

Not sure what to think of this place. I got the impression that they didn't have the funds to renovate. I think they had a lot of nerve asking for extra fees to take photos. A lot of it looked a bit run down. Some...More

This would have been a nice museum if they didn´t try to rip-off the tourists wanting to take photos. First there was an entrance fee (reasonable) and we went on a guided tour that was included. Unfortunately the guide spoke very poor English and was...More
