We visited this museum today after first visiting Chateaux Gruyeres next door. This is a very different experience - very serene with classical music playing in the background. It displays a life collection of Buddhas and other Tibetan iconography.

We took advantage of a combined ticket when we visited the Chateaux. The building of the Tibet Museum was a former church and still retains the stain glass windows at the top. Because it is such an unusual Museum and you can get it at a reduced cost with a Chateaux ticket, I would recommend it. The outside facade does not do it justice.

Gruyere is a small fairytale town with cobblestone streets and flowers in summers. It's small and can be seen on foot. Took a hearty meal at the end at one of the many cafes. From the Gruyere train station it is a 10 min walk uphill to get to the town. Although there are buses that also go up from the train station. Beautiful views. A must do ! I will go back again.

Collector Alain Bordier has renovated an abandoned Catholic church to house his exquisite collection of Buddhas and other Tibetan art ... and has kept the upper half of the main chapel Catholic, with stained glass windows, etc. Lovely fusion. Excellent collection. If you speak French, watch the film by one of the experts from the Guimet Asian arts museum in Paris.

The presentation of artefacts in the Chapel is lovely. This is a very peaceful place, but is definitely upstaged by its neighbours. I thought it relatively poor value compared to the Giger and the castle. Still worth a visit, good place to refresh after the Giger.
