Education and training
National Museum of Mongolia is first museum in Mongolia to encourage access to the museum and its collections to a broad and diverse audience, including the general public and school groups. The museum receives around 80 000 visitors a year, approximately half of whom are foreign tourists. The biggest museum audience is students. We have a strategic goal to be effectively marketing the museum to attract more visitors.
From the year 2000 the National Museum of Mongolian History developed new education policy thus to realize a new education stage for the Mongolian Museum practice. Under this scheme the Museum initiated challenging education project ‘Mongolian History Alive!’ We created many educational program for children as Hero’s in 2006, Mongolian traditional life. Museum educators, school teachers working together and by teaching children about their cultural heritage, we are making sure that Mongolians realize the value of cultural preservation.
Following years a marketing program initiated, as result, for children aged 3-10 we opened the “Children’s Room”, which was made possible by a donation from the USA Embassy in 2004. The museum has implemented Family Tickets and Family Day when low priced tickets are available for family groups. In the “Children’s Education Room” replica costumes are available for children aged 3-5 and 5-16 years so that they can dress up and have their photograph taken. As part of the learning experience, the museum has produced for children aged 10-14 printed crossword puzzles and for children aged 14-16 we are giving history lessons and activities in the exhibition hall.
