Tibet Museum Overview

Ranked 8 of 54 sightseeing in Dharamshala
In a small building in the complex of Dalai Lama's temple, you'll find the Tibet Museum. The pristine white interiors are sparingly filled with photographs and Tibetan artefacts. More than a museum, the Tibet Museum is a library of facts, documents, videos, installations and objects related with the Chinese occupation of Tibet. As you enter you'll be taken through the grim but fascinating methods the Chinese used to intimidate the Tibetan people. Huge sepia tinted photographs tell you how Dalai Lama escaped from Tibet into India dressed like a soldier, the Chinese soldiers stationed at the Lhasa border and many more poignant scenes. A video made by a documentary filmmaker takes you through the torment the Tibetan freedom fighters live through even today. On the second floor you'll see images of optimism. Like the first group of people who came to India from Lhasa. You?ll also find the declaration of the Chinese people to the Tibetans and the promises they made. All in all the Tibet museum takes you through the history of a people determined to hold on to their identity. And changes you in way few will understand.

A taste of something different

The best about this museum was that it had a brief history of what happened to Tibet and Tibetans. Some great saying by Nobel laureate Dalai Lama and a great artwork that shows the history of Tibet. This place has something to convey about a culture, tradition, belief and some hard believing facts about Tibet. If you like to know about different cultures and if you are interested in seeing some great artwork then this place is for you to go.

Right place to know the Tibet History

Good place to understand contemporary Tibet and what it was several decades ago before Chinese invasion in 1949. You are bound to learn a lot of unique things about Tibet.
