The museum had nice soothing music and lighting throughout. The temple was a nice place to sit, relax and contemplate. After we paid our entrance fee, we were handed a book and flashlight. You have to follow the book to learn about the artifacts throughout...More

On the day I visited, the quiet interior, in semi-darkness, made a welcome change from the crowds that swirled around the nearby castle. What makes this Museum unique is that it is located in an old (abandoned?) chapel. The two religions blend in this lovely,...More

An elegant mixture of Buddhist and Christian artifacts respectfully and beautifully displayed. The interior setting was a pleasant integration of traditional Tibetan music and style with pseudo-modern architecture. Wonderful! Worth a visit. There is a small gift shop too.

The museum is located almost right next to the entrance to the Chateau. The collection comprises a fantastic set of Buddha depictions in statues and pictures. The main hall looks like a Buddha shrine with unique atmosphere.
