    This small museum is located in Durban square features artifacts of bronze, wood and wool with beautiful colors. Exposure and message boards not at maximum usability. Still to be seen. Entry 150 rupees. Recommend a photograph from the window overlooking Durban Square

    This is the Museum is the main attaction of Bhaktapur among the many other sites the ticket is really cheap and for student they do have a discount and we have to pay to have a photo or video and while visitng this museum we can visit two more museum which is located in Dattatrya area. They have preserved the history beautifully but still there seems the more area to be focused and reform..

Where to stay in Bhaktapur

Peaceful and less crowded than Kathmandu, Bhaktapur lies close to the international airport, making it a good base for a Nepal vacation. You'll need to pay for a ticket to enter the city, but the proceeds from foreigners' visits help with reconstruction and restoration of Bhaktapur's countless historic buildings. Choose from a variety of accommodation options, most of them cozy, family-run guesthouses and inns situated in traditional buildings with modern amenities. Since vehicles are prohibited in Bhaktapur, plan to explore the tranquil town on foot. Fortunately, most of the hotels and guesthouses cluster around the historic center.
