Why locals recommend it
This often-overlooked museum holds a gorgeous collection of masks, scrolls, and paintings from Nepal, Bhutan, India, and other Himalayan countries. Much of it centers around Tibetan Buddhism. Spend some time studying the Tibetan prayer beads and be sure to visit the prayer room. Lexy can spend an entire afternoon meditating over a single painting here. Well-known and respected Tibetan Buddhists like Ethan Nichtern teach meditation classes here, helping students to feel fully aware and content in the present moment. Check the website for the next class.
