Information

The Zanabazar Museum of Fine Arts features Mongolian art from prehistory through the early twentieth century. The present museum building, located in central Ulaanbaatar, was constructed in 1905 by a Russian merchant. At various times in its history, the building served as a Chinese bank, a Russian Red Army soldier’s office, and a department store. The building was inaugurated as the Museum of Fine Arts in 1966. Among the most significant holdings are sculpture, paintings, and related materials by Zanabazar (1635-1723), the First Bogd Gegen and Mongolia’s greatest artists, and members of his school. The museum has more than 10.000 objects in its permanent collection, of which approximately 500 are on display on its second floor galleries. Organized thematically, the galleries are devoted to prehistoric art, work by Zanabazar, painted thangkas, silk appliques, the Buddhist Tsam dance, nomadic traditions, and paintings by the early twentieth century master, B. Sharav.
