The exhibition ‘Genghis: Rise of the Mongol Khans’ represents a major international collaboration between the National Military Museum, Inner Mongolia Museum and Nomad Exhibitions.
Matt Beastall from Fusion said: “This is such an incredible exhibition with objects that have never before been shown outside China. We had a real responsibility to create an amazing centrepiece.”
Tim Pethick, designer of the exhibition, said: "We wanted to give the European audience an insight into Genghis Khan in a way that hasn't been done before."
Matt added:”The interactive looks realistic and gives an insight into how Mongol warriors would have fought on horseback at that time. The response from the public has been incredibly positive.”
Yong Ding, researcher of China's Inner Mongolia Museum where all the items on display come from, was glad the exhibition immerses visitors in a gripping way. He said: "Inner Mongolia is a mysterious place with a long history, and via this exhibition we hope to bring a better understanding about the culture and history of Inner Mongolia to the Dutch audience".
