I would have to say that it was a small but very interesting little history of Mongolian Art. The tools of the smiths were an interesting addition as well as the paintings of the 2013 politaical upheavals. Maybe needed a few more translations in English, French etc to give the tourists a better chance to understand the exhibits.
Interesting exhibits. If you get the audio guide, be prepared to stand in front of each exhibit for up to 10 minutes. I think Mongolians have a different way of talking about history. For me the guide is very repetitive and too detailed. But interesting nonetheless
