The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art — founded by Jacques Marchais (1887-1948), an important collector and respected expert — replicates the monasteries of Lhasa, containing unique artifacts reflecting art, history, culture, and spirituality of Tibet. Designed by Marchais, the rustic complex of fieldstone buildings resembles a Tibetan monastery. These historic buildings represent the first Himalayan-style architecture to be built in the U.S., and the first museum in the world devoted solely to Tibetan art.
