It is situated in Emmen, called the city of butterflies, Northeastern Holland, at the border with Germany, in a beautiful landscape amidst a forest of huge trees and little ponds. This landscape which used to be a zoo area at the past, hosts now in οne of its pavilions, the Museum of Contemporary Tibetan Art.
The idea of the Museum was initiated by the Tibetan Artist Tashi Norbu and Team, with the aim to become a Museum-cradle of Contemporary Tibetan Art; sending messages of spiritual awareness across the planet; keeping and preserving the Tibetan Art and culture which comes from the roof of the world -where Tibet is-, and embraces all the Western world. And this is the Museum of Contemporary Tibetan Art! The first one in Europe to house and exhibit Contemporary Tibetan Art.
On 1st June 2017 it opened its doors to the public; since then, it has become everyone’s Museum with a continuing activity, projects exhibitions and displays, exploring and sharing perceptions, feelings and innovative thoughts!
