Great/wonderful collection of art from Tibet, Himalaya and around. It's a must go, since the art work available is a treasure.

In a city filled with treasures, this is a an off the beaten path jewel of a museum. I know nothing about Tibetan, HImaylayan, or Indian art. My visit here was educational without being boring, instructive without being condescending. A great accomplishment for any institution....More
