The museum is very ancient. They have really interesting things on display but maintenance is very poor. The buildings are quite dirty both inside and outside. They should try to fix that. Other than that, it was a good visit.

Its at walking distance from the Swayambunath/ monkey temple so comvenient to visit the museum afterwards. There are 3 different museums in the same place, the largest area occupied by hindu-buddhist sculptures. If you'll be taking photos, need to pay extra. Otherwise there are lockers.

The national museum located in Chhauni is the repository of Nepal's historical and culture legacy. A round through it's many rooms will acquaint you with the multi-layered history of Nepal.

There are a few interesting things here, but not many in my opinion. I spent more time waiting for it to open than seeing the displays. Other than a few sexy hindu pieces, everything was not worth it.
