  • The museum is unique for these collections - small but lovely. If art from that area is not your thing, skip it. If it is your thing, this is a don't miss destination. If you are not sure, go, because...  more »
  • Very elegant little Museum to visit. Only the collection of Tibetan art works, especially statuettes, from the 10th to the 20th century. The top floor an area dedicated to multi sensory experiences. When I visit an exhibition of photos of Henry Cartier Bresson

  • You have many Tibetan collections and this remind me of my home Tibet. I have recommended our tibet traveling guests to visit you first as cultural orientation. Thank you.  more »

  • Imagine a museum devoted to all things Buddhism. What a joy. The sense of peace simply radiated off the walls and those that were present brought such a high level of energy that I was high the entire visit. The museum is light in its feel. You sense that from the moment you cross the threshold and are bathed in reverence of the universe. There is a cafe which serves some pretty darn good food, there is a bar that serves drinks along with a bookstore. Loved it.
  • 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!
  • This is now my favourite museum in NYC. Small but perfectly formed, exquisite collection of Tibetan sculpture and paintings. My kids loved the sound exhibition.
  • 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.
  • One of the best museums in New York and I've seen almost all. Make sure to catch a tour with Dr. Ron on a Friday night to get the best experience

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
