Tibet Museum, Gruyeres Reviews

  • This museum was more of a darshan experience than a museum experience. The sanctity and blessing force of many of the Tibetan icons was overwhelming at times, I cried for 5 minutes before entering the lower level chamber which felt more sacred than many temples I have visited around the world. If you are sensitive spiritually this museum is worth it's own pilgrammage if you are visiting any city in Switzerland nearby!

  • What a spectacular little museum! Such a gorgeous collection. Though quite small we were blown away by this place for a few reasons, firstly the pieces in the collection were just wonderful; ornate statues, detailed wall hanging, amazing pieces of carved wood. Everything is lit beautifully and makes the pieces really shine, then as you walk from the first small room down a short but steep set of stairs, well I was completely floored. You enter an exquisitely decorated chapel! Three lovely stained glass windows, painted walls depicting saints, arches with painted scrolling leaves. Just fantastic. And the room was filled some some of the best Tibetan pieces I’ve ever seen. The whole place felt like a wonderful shrine, the two religions not competing at all but actually along with the soft chanting music felt very holy and special. A glass spiral staircase leads up to an over hang level with some more exhibits where you become level with the stained glass across the room. You are offered a talking guide as it’s nearly all in french which we had declined and actually I’m glad we did, because although we weren’t sure as to what some of the pieces were it definitely would if detracted from the specialness. The shop is small but offers some amazing books which can only be found there because of the nature of the foundation. So glad we went.

  • Not much to see. Won't miss a thing if you don't visit.

  • The Buddha, many heavenly gods and a chapel invite you to a spiritual visit. If you are interested in small details, have a taste for the emptiness of Buddhist salvation or simply want to return for a moment, the Tibet Museum can be recommended.

  • A hidden gem in Gruyėre. I did not expect such a place and felt particularly zen after leaving.
