Detailed view of the Tharu culture in sculptures as well as pictures. You will simply love the arrangement of the life and tools used by Tharu people of our Country Nepal. The museum is clean and you can feel the aura of the Tharu people settled all around Nepal. Great job Team. Dont forget to visit.

The Tharu Cultural Museum u0026 Research Center is an amazing place to learn about the Tharu people and their culture. The museum is full of artifacts and information about the Tharu people, and the staff are very knowledgeable and passionate about their culture. I highly recommend visiting the Tharu Cultural Museum u0026 Research Center to learn more about the Tharu people and their culture.

I suggest to visit this place while you are in Sauraha area .. your perception toward Tharu will change.. you will understand cultural and historical part of Tharu's in Nepal .
The museum is just 20 min walking distance from Sauraham Rhino Chowk and if you take 3 wheeler it is 5-6 min drive..
Student get 50% discount on Entry fee so do not forget to bring your card ...
Value for money to visit and experience

Beautiful place to vist. It has a lot of ancient stuffs. This place holds a lot of information about the tharu people. Tharu were the dominant resident of terai region. There are a lot of cultural stuffs of these people. Many dummy model to show the cultural dresses of this ethnicity.
There are a lot of photographs showing the hunting done by ancient king of Nepal which i don't loved cuz i don't like to see any animal being hunt or curled.

The traditional culture and lifestyle is on a rapid pace of Change. Those people were the most primitive settlers in the Tarai Region of Nepal. The culture of going abroad has greatly contributed to the well being of society. However, it has also contributed to the change of their day to day culture and life style with the modern style buildings and western or non Tharu food. This Museum is keeping the some of the informations on the traditional Tharu Culture.

Really good little museum on the Indigenous Tharu, with critical perspectives on the changes to the Terai landscape and their impacts on the Tharu. Just the right size, not too much info to feel overloaded, shame about the distance from the main tourist area though since fewer people would make the trip here. Costs Rs200 for foreigners.
