The museum dioramas
June 25, 2013
The museum in Holhot had the most amazing dioramas. From natural history ones of animals (the wolf is the totem here), mining operations, traditional family life on the steppe, life in the mountains, to the court of Genghis Khan, you felt like you were in the middle of these vast scenes. And because they were not behind glass, they felt more tangible and real. Eventually these will be done with holograms, but it was cool to experience first hand.
One thing I observed was how very few people were at the museum.
