The best way to see this museum is with a local guide (I can recommend the best). The most interesting parts lie between the ancient burial sites and the Evenk complex. After that the wooden houses can seem monotonous, unless you understand the significance of...More

I went here in winter time. Nice museum but most of it closed in winter or covered in deep snow so you can not see the petroglyphs and the ancient stones and graves. Lunch is very good at the nearby restaurant. Animal part is cool...More

After reading reviews, we were excited to see Ulan Udes best rated museum. and we were left with a mostly empty area, featuring: a few stones marked by signs poorly translated into English, a few displays of buildings/tools/costumes/utensils and confusing Russian mini zoo with clearly...More

Take the bus 37 in front of the baikal hotel to access this museum. it's only 20 minutes away. the museum gives a very good view of the region history with genuine houses. Nice walk in the park.

This place is a bit out of the city but well-worth the detour. The bus leaves from the Baikal Plaza Hotel and takes around 20-30 minutes to get there. Just tell the driver muzey and he'll drop you there. If you're interested in old Siberian...More

It was fine to go through a path to discover the local heritage from the prehistoric age to nowadays. You can go inside traditionally built houses and yurtas and understand a little more of the Buriat culture.

The museum is interesting with lots of things to see but the animal section was completely horrendous. I was close to tears when I was walking around it. Animals such as bears, wolves and tigers are being kept in tiny concrete enclosures with absolutely nothing...More
