Ogyen Choling Museum

Ogyen Choling Museum

The highlight of many of our tours is a visit to Ogyen Choling, the proprietor's ancestral home in Tang valley of Bumthang district. The old estate and manor which dates back to over a century, today houses the Ogyen Choling museum which is the first private museum in Bhutan. The museum has an impressive display of articles and objects that were of common daily usage in the household, and also a large collection of religious texts and other literary works. A tour of the museum provides an insightful peek into Bhutan's historical and cultural legacy and the way of life of Bhutan's landed gentry until the advent of modern development around the middle of the last century. www.oling.bt.
