TIBET MUSEUM

At the very heart of a country with deep Catholic roots, there is a museum dedicated to Tibetan Buddhism. A journey within a journey, the Tibet Museum bridges two worlds.

Passionate curator Alain Bordier has assembled a collection of Tibetan art of exceptional quality. The sculptures, paintings, silks and other ritualistic articles are mainly from the Himalayas, between the 6th and 18th centuries.

Visitors are provided with documentation to accompany the exhibits: a copper stupa explains the use of these relics, a statue of a god gives meaning to the movements of Buddha, etc.

The museum occupies the chaplaincy and chapel of a late 19th century institute.

The chapel has a fresco depicting Saint Francis of Assisi talking to the birds. Milarepa, a Tibetan contemporary of the saint, also loved his feathered friends and all living creatures.
