Taragaon Museum

A short walk from the Boudhanath Stupa and within the premises of the Hyatt Regency Kathmandu, stands the Taragaon Museum, originally built in 1972 by Carl Pruscha and re-opened in March 2014.

The Taragaon Museum seeks to document the 50 years of research and cultural heritage conservation efforts of foreign artists, photographers, architects and anthropologists on the Kathmandu Valley during the second half of the 20th century. The Museum showcases the restoration and rehabilitation efforts to preserve the artistic and architectural heritage of Kathmandu. The exhibitions intend to constitute a tribute to the outstanding urban culture of the Kathmandu Valley. The building holds a library, archive, permanent displays, temporary exhibition spaces and an outdoor area including an Amphitheatre. (Taragaon Museum)
