Fourth Floor

Prehistoric and Religious Items (4th Floor)

Inside the Museum entrance on the fourth floor is a small collection of prehistoric items ranging from adzes to earthenware pots collected from different parts of the country. The items represent an important source of information demonstrating the existence of people in Bhutan since the Stone Age.

Also on the fourth floor are religious items from the time when Buddhism was introduced into Bhutan in the 8th century. Items such as ritual daggers, swords and other sacred items are on display.
