Mongolia: Museum Highlights, important works of art - Important Works of Art from the Collections of the Zanabazar Museum of Fine Arts, Bogd Khan Palace Museum, and Choijin-Lama Temple Museum.

Most museums in Mongolia charge an additional fee — often ten times the normal entry fee — for those wanting to take photographs. Rather than taking low quality photos through dirty glass when visiting Ulaanbaatar museums, I used the money to buy Mongolia: Museum Highlights.

This covers fifty odd items from the three leading Ulaanbaatar museums, with colour photographs on the right hand pages facing description and commentary on the left. The items included are bronze figures, paintings on cotton, silk appliqué, wood and paper maché masks and figures, clothing, and vessels, with a small number of other forms — petroglyphs, a sword, earthenware.
