    I purchased a ticket here expecting to visit only MONA, but the ticket is valid for Kathmandu Art House too. MONA is a superb museum showcasing Nepali fine art. AFAICK, there’s only one floor and most of the art is inspired by Hinduism and Buddhism. I would love to hang every painting on my walls, although Gayatri by Udaya Charan deserves a special mention as it captures the beauty of the deity namesake. The sculpture of Avalokitesvara fully captures the compassion of the bodhi, while the sculpture Siddhartha Gautama and the Swan captures a compassionate side of the Buddha that is rarely depicted in Buddhist art. A wonderful way to spend an hour or two.

    The buildings are amazing. Beautiful. But the museum itself is extremely uneven there is a lot of cool things but sometimes the story is not really told. Its just more a lot of things with labels on,not really telling the amazing story of Nepal. Still... Not bad but the potential is there for more

    Amazing experience in this Museum 🙏😌
    We had a truly great time with the main founder of this music museum . We were very well welcome , and the museum was a truly time traveling through the Nepalese culture .
    It was a blessing time .
    And if you are a musician even more 🙏
    We suggest everyone to visit , and to support the Nepalese culture , which is very rich
