Museums

After you have had your fill of watching the mountains, touring the monuments and ransacking the shopping centers, there's nothing like browsing around the museums for some quiet indoor relaxation.  One of Nepal's delights is the variety of museums found in the country

Museums in Kathmandu Valley:

National Museum

Newly renovated and filled with treasures, including a charming dancing Ganesh, breathtaking bronzes, and a rich collection of paubha scroll paintings.  The National Museum at Chhauni near Swayambhu also has an extraordinary collection of ancient firearms, leather cannons and relics of the Great Earthquake of 1934.  Open daily, except Tuesdays and holidays, from 10 am to 4 pm.

The National Numismatic Museum

The National Numismatic Museum, housed in the Mahendra Memorial Building of the National Museum at Chhauni, contains an exceptional Nepalese coin collection spanning the Lichhavi and Malla dynasties (2nd to 18th century AD) as well as the Shah dynasty.  The museum also holds unique pieces dating back to the second century BC.  Open daily, except Tuesdays, from 10 am to 4 pm.  Your ticket to the National Museum entitles you to visit the coin museum also.

Inside the Hanuman Dhoka Palace in Kathmandu Durbar Square highlights the life of King Tribhuvan (1906-1955) who helped liberate the country from the Rana regime in 1951.  The galleries also have rare photographs, paintings, and portraits of other Shah rulers and members of the Royal family.  Cameras are not allowed.  Open daily, except Tuesdays and holidays from 10.30 am to 3 pm; Friday 10.30 am to 2 pm.
