  • Wonderful pieces, just wish the ample space would have included more of the over 3,600 other works the museum owns. Beautifully lit meditation room, interesting example of using sound for healing and variations in tone via gongs that can be submerged to illustrate changes in vibrations, intensity, and resonance. Beautiful and accurate descriptions accompany the works. Small, but impressive museum for lovers of the Himalayas and Buddhism in particular.
  • Marvelous 5 Floor Buddhism and Hinduism history. Lots of history, self discovery learning opportunities. Especially loved the self guided tour, meditation temple, sensory rooms, contemplative experiences. The gift shop is filled with one of a kind special gift ideas.
