This private museum, established in 1965 within the premises of Tibet House, depicts the richness ofTibetan culture and art. On view are colourful wooden sculpture, paintings, especially thanfeas, carpets and ritual objects. Some objects have been collected from monasteries in Tibet while others have been created at the various Tibetan settlements scattered across India.
There are rare 'Thangkhas' or painted scrolls from 15th century Tibetian monasteries, an exquisite collection of Buddha figurines, old currency notes, objects of prayer, musical instruments and antique jewellery. There is a library with books on Tibet, Tibetian history and culture. A shop is also located over here that sells clothes, jewellery, medicines, incense, curios and Tibetian handicrafts.
The House also conducts lecture sessions and discussions on a regular basis that are very informative and those wanting to enjoy an intellectual evening can attend these sessions.
