This museum of Himalayan Art is in a beautiful building, with state of the art interpretive technology. One floor is an introduction to Buddhist art. Other floors are for temporary exhibitions, and works from the collection. Outstanding range of talks and concerts also.

Loved it! Well curated. Feels like a hidden gem, with everyone lining up to visit the MET & not even being aware of this place. Definitely take time to see it. I especially loved the replica of the prayer room.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
