This museum is well done. Information plaques are also in English so no interpreter is needed. Be aware the history is from Beijing's viewpoint and is politically slanted. Many artifacts are on display but one is not sure what is original or a reproduction.

Interesting artifacts and great to see on a hot or rainy day. Doesn't take too long to do but you will get a great feel of the Tibetan lifestyle and traditions.

The art in this museum is wonderful. However, you will have to put up with the BS that Tibet Art is wonderful, but improved with connections to China, and finally met is full potential when China became Communist and returned Tibet to the fold.

We were given only 40 mins by our tour guide to explore the museum which is very short. So we did'nt really go through all the sections. We only managed to cover the thangkas, statues sections. Should spent more time exploring the place.

The most interesting items to me were the Tibetan costume displays. Nice museum, inside and out. Nice views from the steps. Typical museum artifacts.
