  • Small but a fantastic selection, really homey and comfortable. You need some time to go through it properly if you are into it. It's a great place to visit!
  • I came here to write a class paper and brought my son. We both love Tibetan art. We were gonna stay for tea and a snack but decided not to. It's small but, you feel as if you're in a sacred space. Next time we go, we're getting tea.
  • Really awesome place. Loved the layout, loved the exhibitions. They are interactive, educational and even help you relax. The top floor is where the "om" exhibit is located. You get to be apart of art and history by participating. They also have a nice cozy cafeteria with good selections.
  • Yes it is small. But it is cool enough for you to visit it. Quiet, and without the endless flashes of a cellphone cameras. Just like the place the items presented in it are from, peaceful and unique.
  • I cannot say it's outstanding museum, but pretty good. Has a lot to offer besides museum itself. Educational one, I can say.
