“Consider going there only if you have extra time in Lhasa”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

The museum displays Tibetan artifacts back from B.C. You can learn Tibet's culture and its relatonship with Chinese government in different stages of history. 1-2 hour of visit should be enough. There's no entrance fee and there's free guide every 30 mins. Guide equipment is also available for renting.

“if given the option by your guide go some where more interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

There were some good items in this museum the layout was good but wonder how much of the history was missing. The group I was with were funnelled into a souvenir shop below the museum is was quite vast and the sales people were very abrupt and pushy when it came to sales. bought something so I could get out.

“Tibet Museum-just ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

The Tibet Museum was just ok for me. Other parts of Tibet were much more interesting to me. It seemed like the history of Tibet as shown in the museum was more the history of China's influence in Tibet, rather than just Tibetan culture.

“Easy to get there”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

It's very easy to get there by bus or even on walk.
But I must say that nearly all museums in China are similar. All exhibitions begin from how human being develop and yes it's true that China has so many old things to prove we are a old country. But if you are foreigner you will like it.

“Great ceramics, jade artifacts and gift store”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

I enjoyed the exhibits in this museum although the audio guide mechanism is hard to figure out. I kept inadvertently flipping into Japanese and other languages - finally gave up. You definitely get the Chinese version of history and Tibet here. But the jade bowls and statues and the ceramics were magnificent. Displays were so-so. Gift shop was good, particularly compared to Barkhor Street.
