The watchtower which is now a museum sits above the monastery. Tight security to go in to ensure you don't take any photos. There are interesting exhibits mainly about the monarchy of Bhutan. You walk around the various levels mainly in circular passages.

The watch tower Ta Dzong is now home of the Royal Heritage museum. Lots of artifacts related to the ruling Wangchuck dynasty, among them the Raven Crown of the kings of Bhutan. No photography allowed inside.

The museum is very interesting with many ancient relics and statues of dieties. They strictly forbid photography and take all cameras and phones and run you through a detector and a pat down to ensure you have no way of taking a picture. This is probably because they do not want a picture of the demonic statue on the top floor to get out. It is very perverse, grotesque, violent and graphic. Two "dieties" in a graphic compromising position while wearing necklaces and anklets of decapitated heads while stomping the guts out of two other couples in equally graphic compromising positions. This is not the image Buddhism wants to portray. Definitely not suitable for children. A must see for the history of the royal family and the Dzong. If you have made it this far into Bhutan you have already seen some rather alarming Buddhist items.

A stop at the Ta Dzong Museum in Trongsa is not only an excellent way to break up a very long drive from Punakha to Bumthang, but a very well done museum with a fine little lunch stop. Exhibits vary a bit, but generally focus on festivals and the deities as well as Bhutanese history.

The dzong museum houses a collection of historical artifacts of the royal family & Buddhist art. The watchtower has been converted into this museum. You will have to go up & down many stairs. The visit starts with a short AV about the royal family of Bhutan.

The displays include treasures like the 500-year-old jacket & football boots used by the teen aged fourth king. There are two temples inside the Dzong too. Photography not allowed!

The museum is located in a watchtower, a short climb up on steep stairs from the dzong. It is also possible to drive up. The exhibits mainly show Buddhist art and religious items, and are very well presented. Too bad photography is not permitted!

This is a very interesting place, the main attraction ( to my point of view) is the 4 statues you will see when entering, awsome. The rest of the visit deserve attention, as well as the construction itself. No photos, but go.
