The building is magnificent, and combined Tibetan traditional architecture with modern technology. Its characteristics are unique. Together with its neighboring Norbulingka Park, it has become one of the most beautiful places in the ancient city of Lhasa. Before the Tibet Museum was built, numerous cultural relics in the Autonomous Region were kept in shabby storehouses of the departments in charge of historical relics, others were scattered among and kept by the common people. Because of the limitations of exhibition, those relics were seldom put on display for the public, and there were fewer opportunities to introduce them through publication.

As a matter of fact, the rich cultural connotations of these historical relics were not utilized. At the present, under the new conditions of reform and opening up to the outside world, to build in Tibet a large-scale museum with rich content is to inherit and develop our predecessors" career. It has become a center for the broad masses of people to understand the Tibetan history and culture. It has also become a new place of interest in Lhasa, the capital city of the Autonomous Region.
