About Tibet Museum

The Tibet Museum is very close to the main temple (Tsuglag Khang) of His Holiness Dalai Lama in McLeodganj, Dharamshala. It was established in 1998 and inaugurated by Dalai Lama on April 30, 2000. It is the official museum of Central Tibetan Administration Department of Information and International Relations aiming to preserve, research and document the rich history and culture of Tibet. The museum also aims to bring to light the nuances of Tibet’s historical struggle while also raising awareness about the occupation of Tibet, human right abuses committed by China and subsequent Tibetan resistance and exodus. In this way, a visit to this museum will not only educate you about the culture’s beauty but also on its struggles and grievances. This museum comprises of over 30,000 photographs, video playing facility and display panels in the English language. Apart from this, you can view the traveling exhibition educating about Tibet through texts, installations, and documentaries. Also, there is a permanent exhibition documenting the journey of Tibet into exile across the Himalayan ranges, which is interesting to watch. The screening of this documentary is done every day at 3 PM and would need a minimal of 10 rupees as entry charge. A wide range of activities and events are hosted at the museum complex all year round. These include workshops, talk series, documentary screenings, etc.
