Tibet House US aims to promote and preserve Tibetan culture by serving as both a cultural center in New York City and an online global resource for those interested in Tibetan civilization.
The New York City center comprises 7,000 square feet including gallery space, Tibetan Buddhist shrine, photographic archives, a lending library of over 1,000 volumes, gift shop, and staff offices.
In keeping with their mission as a cultural embassy, Tibet House US develops and presents innovative educational and cultural programs for the general public.
Activities include exhibits, print publications and media productions. It also serves as a central meeting place for the local Tibetan community to hold programs and events.
 View all programs, see photos and videos, and visit the Menla Mountain Retreat at the site posted at the bottom of the page.
