DHARAMSHALA, Jan. 12: The exile Tibetan government’s information wing will open a "state of the art" Tibet museum in the soon to be finished compound at the Central Tibetan Administration here at Gangchen Kyishong in Dharamshala by the end of 2018, authorities said Friday.

The exhibits of the museum will rotate around 11 themes; Introduction to Tibet, its history and culture prior to Chinese invasion, occupation of Tibet, Contemporary Tibet, a memorial space for 1.2 million Tibetans that have perished as a result of Chinese invasion, resistance and resilience of Tibetans, environment, escape, exile, His Holiness the Dalai Lama and hope and success.

CTA President Dr. Lobsang Sangay said that the project is part of his 5/50 vision that will be overseen by the Information and International Department’s Tibet Museum, aimed at providing a comprehensive window about Tibet and its numerous layers for anyone that visits the seat of the exile Tibetan polity. He also said that the ‘Tibet Museum’ will be on the frontlines of realizing the goal to spread awareness on Tibet and its situation around the globe.

Tempa Gyaltsen who handles the environment theme along with DIIR Secretary Dhardon Sharling told Phayul that the importance of the particular topic is a resurgent issue on a global level today. He said, “Tibet with its environmental importance for Asia in terms of water and climate, among other things, is an issue both Tibetans and Chinese have to take heed and work together in the long run. The current administration attached great importance to environment of Tibet under China today as well as in the future.”

The new museum space will be allocated on the top floor of the soon to be finished compound tentatively named T-building with a 9000 square feet space that will attempt to, “depict Tibet in a historic, political and international context, showcasing its unique culture and contemporary developments.” The cost of the museum baring the space itself, will amount to 6,00,00,000 rupees, half of which, the Director of the Tibet Museum Tashi Phuntsok said has been sourced. Authorities have also invited schemes for naming opportunities for spaces in the museums for financial donors, to supplement procurement of the other half of the fund.

The Director also said that latest technological editions such as temperature and humidity control will also be a part of the museum’s 1.7 crore rupees budget for equipment and technology, apart from a hefty 1 crore that has been allocated only for security, to protect the artifacts, some of which have been donated by Tibetans across India and abroad including the Dalai Lama Trust, as well as to accommodate exhibitions that will be loaned from international collections and museums.

Services of prominent names in the field from United States has sought as consultants. Dr. Emma Martin who is also the curator of Liverpool Museum will curate the new Tibet museum. The project has been partnered by organizations such as National Endowment for Democracy (NED), and Universities from Liverpool, Manchester and Wyoming.
