We went here during our stop in Namche Bazaar. It was cute inside but didn't really leave a lot of information. What's better about this place is the location and he views it offers of Mt. Everest.

Visited this place after my trek. Glad I did as I saw places I visited. Great movie on Sherpa culture, exhibit in their household, and of course history of Everest. Check out.

Well done replica of Sherpa home before, electricity, running water, or modern building materials. A great collection of artifacts. The photo collection next door is a great complement to the Museum.

Even though it was cloudy when I visited the museum, the Tenzing statue was a nice photo op. On clear days, the views are stunning. The museum itselt is small and only takes about 10 minutes to walk through but it has some cool Sherpa items on display.

If you are a climber, you have to stop by this museum and check out the clipping room. Tons of newspaper articles from around the world about the climbing of Everest. Definitely worth the stop and 2 bucks.

A small but quite interesting museum with an interesting history. Presents a history of the region and people living there. Worth a visit.

A must go destination. The same ground where Tenjing Norgay organised his group for the everest expedition. Also lots of things about sherpa culture . A little up from there and there is a great everest viewpoint.

The Sherpa Culture Museum is a large traditional Sherpa house complete with all the kitchen and farm implements and a brightly decorated prayer room. In the lower floor of the hotel next door there is also two large photo exhibition rooms showing Sherpa culture and the Sherpa heroes of Everest along with countless newspaper clippings about Everest expeditions.
