Khövsgöl Aimag Museum information
Given the variety of wildlife in the aimag, stuffed animals such as the ibex and the lynx are, not surprisingly, the main feature of the museum, as well as a large tusk from a woolly mammoth dating back at least 40,000 years. Highlights of the ethnographic display include a beribboned shaman outfit and Jew's harp (amiin khuur , or mouth fiddle), a wooden Tsaatan saddle and furry skis, a Choijin robe with a skull-bedecked headpiece and a grain bag made of antelope skin.
