Ethnography Museum information
Baruun-Urt’s museum has a fine collection of costumes representing the three ethnic groups that inhabit the region: the Khalkh (the majority), the Dariganga (around 30,000 live in the south of Sükhbaatar aimag) and the Uzemchin (about 2000 live in Dornod aimag and Sükhbaatar aimag). Look out for the brass-studded Uzemchin wrestling jacket.
There are also beautiful examples of products from Dariganga’s renowned silversmiths and blacksmiths, some stuffed gazelle, and two rooms dedicated to the famed poet, author and politician Ochirbatyn Dashbalbar (1957–99), including his electric razor and record collection.
The museum is located just past the drama theatre, 400m south and then right of the square.
