The Bogd Khaan Palace Museum is discounting the cost of entry tickets by 50 percent on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mongolia’s last ruler. Located in the southern part of Ulaanbaatar, it was the winter residence of the last ruler of Mongolia, the Bogd Khaan, Javzandamba. The palace compound was built between 1893 and 1903, and is well known for its Gate of Peace, its temple and the personal library of the Bogd Khaan. The museum was opened in 1926.
The collection of the Palace Museum numbers over 8,000 exhibits, of these 72 are certified by the State as being unique; some are priceless artifacts. The museum welcomes 19-20 thousand visitors each year; between 70 and 80 percent are from foreign countries. The museum offers free visit for students between 26-29 December and 50 percent discount for adults.
This is the only remaining palace of the four residences of the last Mongolian ruler. This palace displays the collection of personal belongings of the last Khaan and his wife as well as a wide variety of Buddhist arts. More modern paintings, such as those of Marzan Sharav, depicting with a slice of humour and irony scenes from the everyday life of Mongols at the turn of this century always attract a lot of attention.
