Lonely Planet review

This excellent museum is inside the 18th-century home of the Tsetseg Khan, who governed most of eastern Mongolia during the Manchu reign. Standout exhibits include ethnic costumes and Khalkha silver jewellery, a shaman outfit complete with skull and feathers, a portrait of the last Tsetseg Khan, painted in 1923, handmade chess sets, and wooden spiral puzzles. The corner building houses 13th-century weaponry including arrowheads and daggers. Also, look out for the ceremonial ger with delicately carved wood furnishing and ornaments.
