The National Museum

A scenic museum if there ever was one! Find the National Museum of Bhutan on top of a hill above Paro Dzong. It was an old watchtower, renovated in 1968, and converted into a museum. Strangely shaped like a conch shell, it houses an impressive collection of thankas and festival masks. There is also a natural history gallery plus religious statues and early stone carvings.
