The Taragaon Museum is supported by The Saraf Foundation for Himalayan Traditions & Culture.
The museum is the starting point of the Foundation’s aim to document Nepal’s cultural heritage and support historic preservation in the Kathmandu valley and beyond.
Before the restoration, Taragaon was a hostel which has now been restored and at places enlarged. It now houses a permanent collection, contemporary art exhibitions, events and performances, café and bar, and is known for its high quality & avant-garde art & performances.
In 1970s, what started as a hostel for young and adventurous, and has evolved is a space that preserves, document and celebrates Art & Culture.
Our permanent exhibition display includes the works of Niels Gutschow, Kevin Burbriski, Thomas Kelley, Jaroslav Poncar, Wolfgang Rang, Andreas Brandt, Robert Powell and many more.
The ambiance of our venue is always the highlight of an event or exhibition. Our hall is favored by artists to showcase a wide variety of artworks.
Taragaon’s open air venue is a unique space for your programs. With a capacity for 150 people, you can choose to make either floor or chair seating in the amphitheater.
Visitors can grab gifts from the shops operating on the museum’s premises. Gifts range from high quality Pashmina Shawls to candles with the best aromas.
Situated in the Taragaon Museum, Flavor’s Café and Restaurant offers a variety of Continental, Indian and Nepali dishes. Its relaxing ambiance, combined with the taste of authentic food, makes Flavor’s Café one of the most visited restaurants in town.
