  • From prehistoric times thru the ages with artifacts and clothing. The details on their bridles and saddles from 600 BC onwards is amazing.. Europeans were living in huts while the Mongols were decorating, with intricate designs, their horses. Gave me a whole new perspective on the word, "civilization". Take your time and read about the displays for they are fascinating.
