The museum is an important cultural landmark of the city, a concentrated expression of cultural heritage, and an important carrier of urban spiritual civilization. With the development of the cultural undertakings in Tibet, the upgrading of the original hardware facilities has become an imperative measure. After researches and discussions, the Tibet Museum was closed from December 2016 to implemented renovation and expansion. At present, the project has been smoothly advanced, and 50% of the main structure has been completed, and 50%-60% of the top-end cap is expected to be closed.
The main exhibition hall of the Tibet Museum’s renovation and expansion project is located in the north facing north. The project covers an area of 65,047 square meters and the construction area is 58,647 square meters (including the old museum retaining area of 3,580 square meters, the newly built area of 55,067 square meters, the exhibition area of 28,859 square meters, and the warehouse area is 9600 square meters), the main building is three floors, the new museum area will be five times larger than the original museum, and the service life can reach 100 years.
As the weather gradually became colder, in order to ensure smooth construction, the Tibet Museum Reconstruction and Expansion Project Team have formulated a winter construction plan. In terms of basic measures, the winter temperature is relatively low, and construction-related covering and insulation materials will be purchased. In terms of economic measures, winter construction involves material price adjustment. For example, concrete needs to be added with antifreeze during winter construction to ensure concrete quality and workers. The project team has made detailed safeguard measures such as quilts and hot water.

Dear Mr. To***,
Thanks very much for your inquiry. Travelling to Tibet from Nepal, you need to apply for Chinese Group Visa in Kathmandu. Firstly, we'll apply for visa invitation letter with copy of your passport. Next, we'll send visa invitation letter to you and our partner in Kathmandu. When you arrive in Kathmandu, you need to meet with our partner and give them your original passport, then they will go to Chinese embassy and apply for Chinese Group Visa for you. When you board plane from Kathmandu to Lhasa, they'll only check your passport and Chinese Group Visa. Apart from Chinese Group Visa, you also need Tibet Permit, we'lll apply for Tibet Permit for you in Lhasa, and our guide will pick you up at Lhasa airport with your permit. I will send detailed itinerary to your email, please check it. Thanks & Regards
