The Museum is located in an eighteenth-century building in Arcidosso that formerly housed the Chancellery, part of the medieval complex of the Aldobrandesco Castle. The new exhibition center is located in this structure (made available by the Municipality of Arcidosso), the fruit of more than thrity-five years of collaboration between Merigar and the Municipality of Arcidosso.

The mission of the Museum is to collect, preserve, and communicate the precious Himalayan and Asian cultural heritage, and increase and stimulate intercultural dialogue. The rich collection of the Museum (collected by Prof. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu with the help of his family) is exhibited across nine thematic galleries along a sensory path that immerses visitors in various cultural and ethnographic experiences using state-of-the-art museum technologies such as panels, video, multimedia and interactive installations, and soundscapes.
