Jacques Marchais Center of Tibetan Arts, Inc.

aka Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art or The Tibetan Museum   |   Staten Island, NY   |  www.tibetanmuseum.org

Mission

The JMMTA's mission is to present the art, culture and history of Tibet to a world audience in order to educate and inspire appreciation of Himalayan cultures and to foster better global understanding. The founder, Jacques Marchais (1887-1948), a remarkable American woman and early 20th century collector, intended the Museum to serve as a bridge between Tibetan art and culture and the West. The JMMTA preserves its unique collection of rare and sacred artifacts and provide careful stewardship of its historic buildings and gardens. It is the intention of the museum to give visitors an understanding the Himalayan region. The museum replicates the monasteries of Tibet while it contains artifacts, that art, history, culture and religious articles that have been destroyed in their homeland.

Exhibitions

In addition to the Museum's permanent installation, the Museum is now featuring a series of exhibitions that fall under the theme of "Freed from the Vault." It is our aim to thematically display many artifacts from the collection that have not been seen by the public in more than 30 years. The Museum presents education programs, community programs, lectures and workshops, special events, and classes in tai chi and meditation. The Museum installs one rotating exhibit per year. The Museum hosts an average of 6000 visitors per year, with 60% of visitors from the NYC area, 20% from the United States, and 20% from other countries.
