I was finally thrilled to be able to visit the Rubin Museum of Art on a recent trip to the city. It again was one of those places on my to do list! What a fantastic place, and so relaxing with all the Asian art and Buddha statues.
Here is their Mission:
The Rubin Museum of Art is a dynamic environment that stimulates learning, promotes understanding, and inspires personal connections to the ideas, cultures, and art of Himalayan Asia.
They have a lovely cafe, Café Serai, which smelled amazing when I visited, and I need to go back to try some of the wonderful Asian inspired menu. I just love all the spices they use in cooking, and they are so healthy for you too.
Information from their website:
The Rubin Museum’s preeminent collection of Himalayan art includes over 3,200 objects spanning more than 1,500 years to the present day. Included are works of art of great quality and depth from the Tibetan plateau, with examples from related surrounding regions including Nepal, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, China and Mongolia.
This photo came out so well I think I am getting one made framed for my home. So beautiful!
The Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room provides an immersive experience inspired by a traditional shrine that would be used for offering, devotion, prayer, and contemplation. It was amazing to sit here and just relax and be. This exhibit will be running until October 17, 2016. It is a must see for sure!
There will be a separate post for their gift shop which is AMAZING! You can visit the gift shop and restaurant without visiting the museum, if you wish.
