About The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art
The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art — founded by Jacques Marchais (1887-1948), an important collector and respected expert — reflects the visions of Potala Palace of Lhasa, Tibet, containing unique artifacts reflecting art, history, culture, and spirituality of their homelands, and represents the first Himalayan-style architecture to be built in the U.S.
Since its opening in 1947, the Museum has welcomed scholars, cultural envoys, community members, and famously H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama (1991), for exchange of knowledge, arts & culture, and preservation of memory for generations to come.
