Location: Thimphu, Bhutan

A 150 years old traditional house stands out surrounded by modern concrete structures close to the city center. The medieval structure is the folk heritage museum. To promote and preserve Bhutan’s cultural heritage, the house was renovated and restored to exhibit Bhutan’s ancient heritage.

The main structure is a three storied mud rammed house with wooden shingles as its roof. The interior of the house simulates the setting of a 17th century lifestyle in Bhutan. The museum has a collection of ancient tools and artifacts that explains the traditional Bhutanese lifestyle.
