The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art was designed, built and founded by Jacques Marchais, a visionary American woman who was an important collector and respected expert on Tibetan Art. Its complex of buildings and gardens resemble a Tibetan mountain monastery and represent the first Himalayan style architecture built in the United States. The museum is the realization of Marchais’ dream to provide a peaceful retreat where the public could study the art and culture of Tibet.

Currently on view are selected objects from the museum’s collection and Tibetan Portrait: The Power of Compassion featuring portraits of contemporary Tibetans by the renowned photographer Phil Borges as well as family-friendly interactive displays illustrating aspects of Tibetan culture.
