You need to know the history of the sherpa people when in Nepal and especially when in Namche. They have a nice informative film, and this is a good museum documenting the history and lives of the sherpas. In addition they have a little cafe with a really good espresso :-)

Lots to see at the Sherpa museum, loads of photos, newspaper articles, Everest documentation and stories about the brave Sherpas. Well worth a visit even though it is at the top of a very steep climb! Our boys loved it here

The Sherpa are so proud of their heritage an history and willing share it with all. It costs 250 rupees (about $ 2.50) and is well worth it. The authentic tools and bowls and other items as well as the slide show, and the Everest picture room (with current and past sherpas who have submitted is well worth your time)

We went here during our stop in Namche Bazaar. It was cute inside but didn't really leave a lot of information. What's better about this place is the location and he views it offers of Mt. Everest.

Visited this place after my trek. Glad I did as I saw places I visited. Great movie on Sherpa culture, exhibit in their household, and of course history of Everest. Check out.

Well done replica of Sherpa home before, electricity, running water, or modern building materials. A great collection of artifacts. The photo collection next door is a great complement to the Museum.

Even though it was cloudy when I visited the museum, the Tenzing statue was a nice photo op. On clear days, the views are stunning. The museum itselt is small and only takes about 10 minutes to walk through but it has some cool Sherpa items on display.

If you are a climber, you have to stop by this museum and check out the clipping room. Tons of newspaper articles from around the world about the climbing of Everest. Definitely worth the stop and 2 bucks.
