Well situated on a main axis of the city, the museum offers a great modern architecture and plenty of exhibition rooms that review the history of the region in great detail and with lots of valuable artifacts. One of the most stunning hall is that...More

This is a good place to see dinosaur bones and fossils from the area. There are some good exhibits on the human history from the PRC perspective. Not everything has English captions but certainly enough to get a good sense of what you are seeing....More

Huge building but not much inside interesting for foreigners. It is not worth a visit. The outside of the building is interesting.

This museum has some exquisite artifacts, ranging from Neolithic stone paintings to Mongol weaponry. It is laid out in such a bad manner that you don't get a good sense of the history of the region. So much space is wasted on dioramas and so...More

We had heard that this was the best museum in Inner Mongolia, and had this at the top of our "things to do" list. It was not a disappointment, as we spent almost two hours viewing the exhibits. The only negative was that it was...More

We arrived early afternoon and walked a half hour to the museum. It is very well organized and traffic flows well. Very interesting displays and great to learn about Inner Mongolia before we began our two week adventure through the territory.

The museum visit surprisingly turned out to be a discovery journey about Inner Mongolia. After the visit, I learned that they have found many dinosaurs fossils in IM and that they have an aerospace program and rocket launch pad in the desert there. It dismisses...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Hi All, I am wondering if anybody could help. I visited the Museum in Hohhot around three weeks ago and am writing up some of my observations. I would love to cite from the text that prefaced the Inner Mongolian Political History exhibition but stupidly did not take a photograph. It was displayed at the beginning as the other boards where and written on it was something along the lines of 'only the CCP can secure the liberty of the Mongolian people'. Has anybody captured this text? Has anybody found the text online at all? I would be very grateful if you could help. Best wishes, John
