Tribhuvan Museum, Kathmandu Overview

Located inside the Hanuman Dhoka Palace, the Tribhuvan Museum contains the personal artefacts of Nepal' King Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah. This part of the palace was built in the late 19th century and suffered a huge damage during the 2015 earthquake. It is believed that the Late King used to sit here and observe the problems and prosperity of his people.

Built to celebrate the king's successful reign, the Tribhuvan Museum houses a fabulous collection of historical artefacts that were owned and used by him. These include statues, woodwork, stonework, weapons, the king's attires, his walking stick, boxing gloves, thrones among other things. The museum also has his priceless collection of coins and a number of photographs on display from the historic events that King Tribhuvan was a part of and his hunting sprees. A section of the museum also has a recreated model of the king's study and his bedroom. For about a century now, artefacts from King Tribhuvan's life, his victories and his memories have been treasured in the museum.
