History Museum information
This decent History Museum contains a mammoth bone, some fine religious art and a tsam mask, worn during lama dances, made from coral. There is also a good collection of photographs of Uliastai taken in the early 20th century and a few grisly reminders of the Manchu era in the form of shackles and torture devices. The map on the wall depicting Uliastai's layout when it was still a garrison is also interesting.
