  • 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.
