The Tibet Museum 

In 1988, the CTA’s Department of Information and International Relations (DIIR) implemented the vision to create a centre dedicated to documenting, preserving, researching, and educating about Tibet. On 30 April 2000, His Holiness the Dalai Lama inaugurated the Tibetan National Commemoration and Documentation Centre, later renamed the Tibet Museum, at the Main Temple complex in McLeod Ganj. 

At its core, it believes in the ethos of continuous cyclic work in Collection, Conservation and Connection, whereby it acts as a single point National Archive of historic artefacts, documents and photographs of Tibetan diaspora, thereby weaving es a rich tapestry of Tibet’s history and cultural heritage while providing insight into Tibet’s recent history, occupation, and current situation. 

As a subsidiary unit of CTA it aims to reinforce two polarities i.e. historically independent Tibet and rejects the current grievous situation inside Tibet by tThrough its permanent and temporary exhibitions, lectures, film screenings, and travelling exhibitions across India and beyond, & hence leverage to the Umaylam (Middle Way Policy) 

The Tibet Museum in McLeod Ganj was closed following the allocation of new space for the Tibet Museum and its establishment in 2022 at Gangchen Kyishong, seat of the Central Tibetan Administration.
