Museum holdings, e.g. artifacts, pictures, statues, etc., all very well displayed, lit, and described - all in English! You slowly ascend 3-4 floors of museum space all very well done.

A steep walk up to this tower will reveal a quaint museum like no other I have seen yet. The layout and descriptions are perfect and chronologically apt.

The information on the formation of Bhutan and the Buddha is presented in a concise and clear manner. The display of historical items is limited. It has lovely views of the valley.
