Tibet Museum Reviews
A small museum with an excellent collection of old Tibetan artifacts (mostly Buda figures and alike). If you care of that kind of culture, the museum is a true gem! more »
Small but relatively impressive amount of Asian art pieces exhibited in a small premise of a small but quite a famous Swiss village. I enjoyed my visiting as there were only one couple around so no... more »
What a find! I had no idea this was here (I was here for the Giger museum) but this little museum must not be missed! It is PACKED with amazing artifacts and exhibits. Theres SO MUCH in such a small space!
What a spectacular little museum! Such a gorgeous collection. Though quite small we were blown away by this place for a few reasons, firstly the pieces in the collection were just wonderful; ornate statues, detailed wall hanging, amazing pieces of carved wood. Everything is lit beautifully and makes the pieces really shine, then as you walk from the first small room down a short but steep set of stairs, well I was completely floored. You enter an exquisitely decorated chapel! Three lovely stained glass windows, painted walls depicting saints, arches with painted scrolling leaves. Just fantastic. And the room was filled some some of the best Tibetan pieces I’ve ever seen. The whole place felt like a wonderful shrine, the two religions not competing at all but actually along with the soft chanting music felt very holy and special. A glass spiral staircase leads up to an over hang level with some more exhibits where you become level with the stained glass across the room. You are offered a talking guide as it’s nearly all in french which we had declined and actually I’m glad we did, because although we weren’t sure as to what some of the pieces were it definitely would if detracted from the specialness. The shop is small but offers some amazing books which can only be found there because of the nature of the foundation. So glad we went.
