The Rubin Museum of Art, located @ 150 West 17th Street, was a lovely discovery. I arrived just before a free tour @ 1 pm and joined the small group. The tour was on the 6th floor and a presentation of Buddhas was given. The galleries offered Buddha history from several countries as well as The Art of Tibetan Medicine. I was disappointed the 2nd floor exhibit of Gateway to Himalayan Art and Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room closed but will reopen July 2nd. Many pieces were on loan from The Brooklyn Museum. A real feast for the eyes were the objects ranging from statuaries, scrolls, wall hangings and blood letting instruments. Senior rate was $10. Café and small gift shop in the lobby. Pay attention to where photographs are not allowed.
