  • The moment you enter this museum, a feeling of tranquility washes over you. Stand in the center of the spiral staircase and listen to the sound of chimes; this is a museum like no other. Ascend the st...  more »

  • The best exhibitions, always! If you can go on a guided tour, your visit will help your life to be better. Always illuminating, with intelligence, the paths that you want to follow. Focused on the arts of Nepal, Tibet and the region, the collection is exceptional, the store is great-always interesting stuff, this time I bought stamps, fabric printing a huge collection. I saw an exhibition about Lhasa and its temples, guided by a volunteer, I will not leave so early in the memory. Not to be missed!

  • Really neat museum! Very different from the typical art museum, and I like the narrow focus of Tibetan art. The food is DELICIOUS so be sure to go for lunch or dinner with your trip. They also have events like live music.
  • I was part of a group that took a private guided tour through the museum. The collection is absolutely stunning, and even more impressive when given context from the tour guide. One of the best Himalayan and Tibetan art collections in America.
  • Very nice surprise in the middle of a hectic city. The place features artifacts from the Himalayas and provide a great escape from the city outside. You have corners in the museum itself where you can just sit and relax. They provide a free audio tour which you can request at the ticket reception.
  • very nice enjoyable museum devoted to Himalayan art.Had some sensory exhibits that were very relaxing. Got a sense of the spiritual.fir the average person unless you are deeply into it,I would suggest the excursion takes about an hour to an hour and half.
  • One of the most underrated museums in NYC. Beautiful exhibition with impressive pieces on hindu and Buddhist culture. Very well organised and structured.
