Mongolian main traditional garment is a deel which is gown-like clothing made by cotton, wool or silk. Most Mongolians have several different deels, appropriate for different seasons, as well as a more decorative deel for special occasions. Winter deels have lined with sheepskin. The deel having a high collar, brightly coloured is worn with a multipurpose, and is worn by men and women year-round. Ethnic groups are differentiated by the colour, decoration, ornament and shape of their deel.

The khantaaz is a shorter traditional jacket, often made of silk, which is also buttoned to the side and usually worn over the deel.

The gutul is a high boot made from thick leather and sometimes decorated ornately. They are easy to put on - both the left and right boots are the same shape.

The aim of the museum is to publicize traditional costumes to tourist and foreigners and to educate younger Mongolians about traditional clothes in the hope that younger people will wear garments.

The museum was officially opened on 23th of July 2005 by the City Mayor's Office, the World Mongolian Association of Costumes and Academy of the National Costumes Study.

The costumes in the museum were created by designers at the Mongol Costumes Company and around 60 of the company's 400 designs are on display. The collections include the traditional costumes of the Mongolian ethnic groups such as uzemchin, zakhchin, torguud and khoton and kazakh.

The exhibits include two garments that won prizes from the international arts festival of the Mongol races held in Ulan-Ude, Russia in March 2005. These are an uzemchin women's head decoration won the grand prize and the collection was named Queens of Chinggis that won first prize.
