Dear Jacob,

Right the moment the main National Museum in  Chauni is probably busy with Earthquake  damage. I have heard nothing about either the painting museum or the wood museum.

Fortunately for you I have rather extensive photographs from both the Chauni including the Buddhist wing, The bronze Museum in Patan and the Painting museum and a few from the wood museum both in Bhaktapur.  If you let me know what you are looking for perhaps I can help.

Dear list,

Does anybody know how to successfully contact the National Museum of Nepal in Kathmandu with enquiries about their art collections? The only email address I have been able to find is, and after several attempts I have yet to receive an answer.
