This is not my type of museum, but I have a lot of Hindu friends, so I wanted to learn more about Hinduism, so here I am. This museum also touches on Buddhism and other practices of the Himalayan... more »
So with NYC just at the start of lock down (Covid19) the places we intended to pay a cultural nod to were already closed. A google revealed the Rubin and since one of our party is a practicing... more »
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!
Beautiful museum! Came here on a Wednesday evening and it was not packed at all. We were able to leisurely enjoy every floor. I loved it and would definitely be back. Cool installations on the top floor!
One of my favorite museums in NYC. It has a nice vibe, I always feel peaceful after visiting it. Was there with my mom and a 11 years old daughter - everyone enjoyed the experience. P.S there is also a bar inside the museum on a first floor😉
I was very impressed with the well thought-out exhibition which incorporated every part of the museum in it's scope. From the grand swirling staircase, to the food in the cafe and on every floor. Wonderfully curated collection of historical and contemporary pieces staged with excellent contextual information. A must visit museum!
