Bulgan Aimag Museum information
This museum on the main street has some information on obscure sights in the aimag; a display on J Gurragchaa, Mongolia’s first man in space; war photos, and a few musical instruments, including the ol' human-femur-cum-wind-instrument. The ethnography section features a red-eyed wolf and a demented-looking lynx; elsewhere there are a few period surgical instruments that make you glad you live in the 21st century, some airag (fermented mare's milk) churners and saddles.
