Interesting museum for Himalayan art. We went on a tour and the topic was a big of a miss but the atmosphere of the space is very welcoming. Each floor is quite small but there is a beautiful spiral staircase in the center.
Simply Magical! 6 Floors, Camera-friendly, Spiral Staircase, Red-walled, Multimedia Museum of Tibetan and Himalayan art. Free admission on certain days and Happy Hours top off this great little museum. Ultimately, it's the atmosphere that encourages a shared appreciation of art and culture that makes this place so special. It is somewhat esoteric and diverse, with many interactive pieces, clear explanations of what symbols mean, and spaces that encourage discussion between guests. Definitely worth a visit!
