Photographer's Note

The impressive facade of the UB natural history museum. There were some interesting dinosaur bones inside, retrieved from the Gobi Desert, further south. From Wikipedia:

"Ulaanbaatar has several museums dedicated to Mongolian history and culture. The Natural History Museum features many dinosaur fossils and meteorites found in Mongolia.[18][19] The National Museum of Mongolian History includes exhibits from prehistoric times through the Mongol Empire to the present day.[20][21] The Zanabazar Museum of Fine Arts contains a large collection of Mongolian art, including works of the 17th century sculptor/artist Zanabazar, as well as Mongolia's most famous painting, One Day In Mongolia by B. Sharav."
