The museum is in temporary accommodation at present, so the full extent of the exhibits was not able to be seen.

Good scenic beauty surrounding the museum. Inside the museum (yes it is small one) only 4 units are there. Audio visual facility available. Mobile & Camera are not allowed inside. Wash room facilities are also available in the campus, which is very less in the Bhutan country

Lots and lots of information on Bhutan, simply the best place for history lovers. Quite a few display of birds makes it more interesting,

Is a small simple temporary museum, a little introduction to Bhutan culture & habitats. Just a few rooms with exhibits that takes less than an hour to complete.

The main thing to note here is, as some other reviewers mentioned the museum is currently undergoing some renovation/repair and some of the items are moved to the office building near by where there are displays of many artifacts, masks, model structures(like the Tiger's Nest) are there along with a good photographic collection of the Bhutan royals. Also there are displays of the wildlife and geography of Bhutan with videos and sound effects. There is an entire room dedicated for the different kinds of masks used during their traditional dances and video describing the meaning and details.
The actual museum that at one point in history also served as a watch tower looks beautiful from outside but as of November 2019 it is closed for visitors. I clicked some nice pictures from outside and just wished I could go inside and see :(

There are displays of videos regarding the culture and wild life of Bhutan which is playing contentiously on the video screen. But currently the museum is not in this building as it is under repair.

The museum is quite small and basic, but provided a good overview of the country and it’s culture. We did not spend much time in the museum and spent most of the time outdoors.
