Mostly there are only pictures of Tibetean culture rather than artifacts, there is only 1 sculpture on 1st floor.No entry fee and place is quieter than most places in McLeodGanj.

The Tibet museum depicts the history of Tibet and the sad history of the wars and the attacks. The also have a wall for all the lives that have been lost in the cause to free Tibet to self immolation.

If there is any place to do justice to the story-telling of what Tibet has gone through, this is it! Situated in the premises of the Dalai Lama temple complex, it has heart-touching pictures that indicate the atrocities carried out over Tibetans.

This is situated in Dalai lama temple complex. Its worth to visit to understand the culture and history of Tibet and its people. Also you will come to know what China has done with them.

The museum focuses on articulating Tibet struggle for freedom. Very well illustrated and heart touching. It is mostly photographs and write-ups. There is also a silent video film in played in TV which also articulates Tibet struggle for Freedom. The Museum is in two floors...More
