Objects on display are mostly Tibetan Buddhist in origin, though there are also items dating from the 15th to the 19th centuries from Nepal, India, Japan and Thailand. The collection is rich in metal figures of deities and lamas, as well as thangka or religious paintings. There are examples of jeweled metalwork, silver ceremonial implements, jewelry, dances masks and imperial Chinese cloisonné objects. This intimate museum also has terraced sculpture gardens, a waterlily and carp pond and a far view of Hudson Bay.
