A visit to Tibet without a Sherpa
Founded in 1945, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art was the result of one woman's passion for the ancient art and culture of Tibet. Built into the hillside, the Museum resembles a Himalayan mountain monastery and houses the vast collection of Tibetan artifacts that Jacques Marchais (1887-1948) amassed in her lifetime.
When the Tibetan Museum opened, it was the first of its kind in the United States and remains a unique attraction in New York City. Today, the Tibetan Museum features exhibits, a library, workshops, and peaceful gardens that provide visitors with the opportunity to learn, reflect, and relax.
