    The Friday lounge is exceptionally alluring. Happy Hour 6-7pm with a tour. The food wasn't all that bad. The duck braised momo is a must try to expedience nepalese food.

    ALWAYS start on the second floor (FL 2). The entire floor is a nice simple tutorial, with examples, of the culture, context, technique, symbolism, and history related to all the art you will see.

    Gene Han · November 11, 2013
  • Martin C.

    Get a coffee and something to eat elsewhere because the wait for either is ridiculous and nobody cares when you ask where your order is. Half empty and the staff are totally unable to cope

    This lovely museum offers a calm, almost spiritual retreat from the city’s busy crowds. And, due to the museum’s manageable size, you can fully explore the collections in under a day. Read more · May 1, 2012
