Simply Bhutan Museum

A “living” museum, Simply Bhutan is an initiative of the Bhutan Youth Development Fund that aims to increase young Bhutanese people’s engagement with their traditional culture. Housed in a traditional building not far from the center of Thimphu, the museum offers visitors a fun opportunity to learn about Bhutanese traditions, dress up in kiras and ghos (as well as unusual regional costumes), and to try archery or khuru (darts) in the open courtyard. The museum doubles as a photo studio, offering a fun range of backdrops and props to help visitors capture a unique holiday snap. An on-site cafe serves Bhutanese food, and “Magical Moment” performances are held daily.
