Museum of Orkhon Aimag information
Hidden in a concrete complex on the right side of the Marx mural, this small museum showcases a mix of subjects – from Khalkha, Kazakh and Buriad national costume, traditional musical instruments and snuff bottles made of semi-precious stones to a model of the copper mine (you can see it in ‘day’ or ‘night’) and a model of a modern ger with a TV inside.
