Its a beautiful museum where one can get to know the entire store of Tibet and their culture. No entry fees is required. You will be upset once you go through their entire story and pictures. Tibetans have faced the very tough time. Well maintained!

This is good museum but here all descriptions are mostly on the wall. But you can know very good history of Tibetans. How they reach Mcleodgaunj and dharmshala . Some reached there some died on the way. One time visiting ok.

The Tibetan Museum has articulated the history of Tibet and its ongoing challenges. It is short but very informative. It is just before the Dalai Lama Temple and the entry is free.
