Reportedly good museum

This museum was a part of Bhakatpur Durbar square. People say it was a very good museum, but sadly it got damaged in the earthquake and is closed since then.

Londoner: Expect to pay to get in but do not expect to see anything of significance. The artwork and displayed were very damaged and difficult to understand what they were.

It is located in the house surrounding the Changu Narayan Temple. Nothing much to watch only few collections. Totally destroyed by the earthquake of 2015.

The Living Traditions Museum is located within the Changu Narayan temple complex only an hour's drive out of central Kathmandu. The approach to the temple and the temple itself bring one back to what the Kathmandu Valley was like before 'modernization' took over.
