Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/ On March 11, President Kh.Battulga, accompanied by Minister of Education, Culture, Sciences and Sports Yo.Baatarbileg and authorities in charge of cultural issues of the city, visited Central Museum of Mongolian Dinosaurs, Fine Arts G.Zanabazar Museum and the National Museum of Mongolia.
They got acquainted with activities of the museums and exchanged views on present conditions, pressing issues and utilization of the museums’ buildings and conservation and safeguarding of exhibits.
The National Museum of Mongolia, founded in 1924, conserves and displays very rare and unique findings of Mongolian history, culture and ethnicity. As of today, the museum has nine chambers, set up on the themes and contents, namely ‘Ancient Mongolian history’, ‘Ancient states of Mongolia’, ‘Traditional costumes and ornaments’ (XIII-XIX centuries), ‘Mongolian Empire’ (XIII-XIV centuries) as well as others.
The Central museum of Mongolian Dinosaurs was established to protect, register and verify fossils in order to preserve heritage for future generations. It officially started operating on February 21, 2013. It exhibits T.Bataar and other precious fossils in over 1000 square meters. With this exhibition, the museum broke the Mongolian all records as the most visited museum and also the museum with the highest income.
The Fine Arts G.Zanabazar Museum, founded in 1966, has 17 chambers and four treasures, but just displays 10 percent of its 20 thousand exhibits due to lack of space and other reasons.
