Nepal Ethnographic Museum

Nepal is a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-religious and multi-lingual nation. Pluralism and diversity are its unique and notable features. As the pace of transformation intensifies, there is merit in preserving a representative sample of existing lifestyles as a testament to the magnificent diversity of Nepal’s cultural forms – our most cherished and unique practices, beliefs, customs and material aspect of our multi cultural society – for future generation. Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) and Nepal National Ethnographic Museum (NNEM) has joined hands to develop this museum into reality.

Realizing the dearth of reliable information outlet that showcases Nepal’s unparalleled ethnic and cultural heterogeneity, a museum with joint venture of NTB and NNEM has been developed within the Tourist Service Center (TSC) premises. The Museum aims to function as a living resource center to inform and educate both Nepalese and foreign visitors/tourists interested to know and learn about Nepal’s architecture, and culture (customs life styles and folkways).

Features of the Museum

The museum is established in two halls located on the 1st floor of (TSC) at Bhrikuti Mandap. A permanent exhibition of eleven different ethnic communities ( the Thakali, the Sherpa, the Tamang, the Gurung, the Rai, the Limbu, the Chepang, the Jyapu of Newar group, the Magar, the Sunwar, and the Tharu) is affixed in the diorama hall and a periodic exhibition of individual ethnic community has been showcased in the ethnographic itemization of entire life cycle in ethnic exhibition hall.
