Our major exhibition Genghis: Rise of the Mongol Khans is opening to the public for the first time at the National Military Museum in the Netherlands. This is a major international collaboration between the National Military Museum in the Netherlands, Inner Mongolia Museum and Nomad Exhibitions. The exhibition features a rare collection of treasures from Inner Mongolia, including the original bronze seal of Genghis Khan’s daughter and a precious Yuan dynasty golden saddle (pictured above).
