One Sentence Summary: The website of the Tibetan Museum Society is mainly dedicated to resources on Mongolian and Tibetan art.


The website of the Tibetan Museum Society has resources on Mongolian and Tibetan art, and also a smaller amount of resources on these cultures in general. It features galleries of Tibetan and Mongolian Art, and listings of museums and exhibits that feature Mongolian and Tibetan Art. The website is also currently working to publish academic essays on topics relating to Mongolian and Tibetan art and culture. (Ben Deitle 2006-04-11)

The Society’s mission statement reads: “The Tibetan Museum Society is a recently formed, civic league of concerned international citizens who wish to advocate museum exhibition of Asian art from ancient Mongolia and the Greater Himalayan Region. Through a broad range of programs and projects, the Society's two primary focuses are: 1) to provide financial support to selected museums that enrich the arts with display of historically significant representations of Buddhist culture and 2) to protect sacred, religious shrines, from which Buddhist art is gathered for public sale or display against removal without consent, artifact s of any kind. Though not allied with any political group or religious sect, the Tibetan Museum Society supports the fundamental humanitarian right to freedom of religious expression and is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.”
