The art is very well preserved. Photography is not allowed inside the gallery but obviously there are people who don't respect the rules.
The gallery is on the ground floor of Nicholas Roerich's house. The house itself has been preserved for tourists to visit. The house is a simple wooden structure, with quaint stone walls and cannot bear the weight of more than 20 people at a time.
From the first floor balcony, you can see the stunning valley and understand why Roerich decided to spend the rest of his life in this house.
From the first floor one can also see the Peace Flag, a white flag with circle with three dots inside.
"Roerich described the circle as representing the totality of culture, with the three dots being Art, Science, and Religion, three of the most embracing of human cultural activities. He also described the circle as representing the eternity of time, encompassing the past, present, and future."
It is a place of pilgrimage for art enthusiasts to pay tribute to the man who made nations respect art and culture above any military necessities.
