0 people found this answer useful Useful ?Yes

The two museums and art gallery in Mcleodganj are unique in that they not only provide a peek into the history of Mcleodganj, but also the Tibetan culture and their turbulent past and the beautiful creations of a British and German artist who have been inspired by varied artistic styles brought forth in their creations:


  • Tibet Museum

Tibet Museum, the lone museum in Mcleodganj, is an exemplar of traditional Tibetan architectural style blended with more contemporary styles. Not only will you come across rare Tibetan historical documents, manuscripts, Thangka images, pottery and other handicraft items, but also photos, interviews and video clips that narrate and document the soulful reality of Chinese occupation of Tibet and the subsequent exodus of Tibetans. Here you can also buy paintings, artifacts and handicrafts being sold at the Museum shops and carry back home with you beautiful souvenirs of this visit.

Hallett exhibited at the Naam Art Gallery; oils, acrylics and watercolors that are mesmerizing enough to captivate you for hours to end. Though most of the works of A.W. Hallett are owned by the Himachal Pradesh Government and paintings here are definitely going to be out of your budget, you can always buy some of the art prints that are for sale here at INR 400.
