Bhutan’s National Museum
The National Museum of Bhutan was established in 1968. It overlooks the breathtaking view of Paro Valley. The museum is located in the town of Paro, Western Bhutan. During your trip to Bhutan, do not miss out on a visit to this museum as it will introduce you to the country’s history and culture through its vast collection.
The cultural museum houses the country’s prized specimens of Bhutanese traditional art pieces, relics and finest artifacts. When you are in the museum, you will see a wide range of exhibits. One of the longstanding exhibits would be the exhibit on Bhutanese antiques (earthen, copper, bronze pots, vessels, swords, farming tools, weapon, ritual objects etc). Another notable exhibit is the display of birds and insects that were kept well preserved for many years.
The museum can be accessed daily from 9 am to 5 pm in the summer months (April to October) and 9 am to 4pm in the winter months (November to March). Do not visit during the government holidays as you will be left empty handed as they will be closed.
A visit to the museum will set you back from a range of Nu. 10 to Nu. 150, depending on your nationality. Of course, fees are subject to changes, you may refer to admission fees to the National Museum of Bhutan.
