"I could never resist the call of the trail" - Buffalo Bill


The National Museum of Mongolia is a cultural, scientific, and educational organization that presents Mongolian history and culture from the dawn of humanity to the present day. A significant responsibility for preserving Mongolian cultural heritage therefore lies with the museum. Today museum has 50 employees. The museum has been implemented several different projects related to museum research work in cooperation with foreign and domestic museums as well as scientific organizations. The Museum is supported through admission fees and government funding from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The origins of the National Museum of Mongolia date back to 1924, when the first collections were begun for a national museum, whose building no longer stands.

The present building of the National Museum of Mongolia was built in 1971, when it was erected as the Museum of Revolution. At that time all collections of ethnography, prehistory, middle history, natural history and paleontology were housed in the building of the Central Museum, which was built in 1956. In 1991, the ethnography, prehistory and medieval history collections of the Central Museum were combined with the 20th century history materials at the Museum of Revolution to create the collections of the National Museum of Mongolian History, and the Museum of Revolution building name was changed accordingly.
