The Simply Bhutan Project is a unique project that is one of its kinds in the country. It is a living museum and photo studio created and run by the youth of Bhutan. While the infrastructure is made from collection of doors, window frames and other building materials from old traditional Bhutanese houses that are demolished, the photo studios portray age-old life styles of the Bhutanese people. Every door or a window frame tells a storey and a legend of Bhutan then. One of the doors in the structure is at least 200 years old and the wear and tear of usage evidences it. Likewise the items in the kitchen studio and the small display room also date back to the yonder days. Simply Bhutan is truly an innovative creation of restoring the old and the precious.To visit Simply Bhutan Museum on your trip to Thimphu, use our Thimphu visit planner.
Simply Bhutan offers visitors from outside and within the country a fascinating experience of a true Bhutanese culture and tradition. With youth as employees in Simply Bhutan, we are providing opportunities for young people to participate in preserving and restoring their rich old heritage and culture.

Simply Bhutan is Simply Awesome! Unlike traditional museums which has everything in a box or hanging on wall, you can experience everything here. This is a living museum as they say. They will offer you the traditional drinks, dance for you, give on hand experience about the things that they are talking about in the museum
If you are interested in the culture of Bhutan, then you must pay a visit here for sure. Maximum of 1hr will do. They perform traditional dance, they show you how they build houses in earlier days, the utensils they used and much more. A person will guide you through the museum and explain each and every stuff. They also sell bags, paintings inside the museum. You can just give try with their national sport Archery and they do dance if you hit at the target :)
