A really cool museum-it is one of the biggest collections of Tibetan and Buddhist art in the world. There were a lot of artifacts that I had never seen anything like in my life. The only cons for me are that it is in no way interactive or engaging and is very old-school museum inside. But the space is nice and you will definitely see a lot of beautiful art and artifacts.
