Inside Folk Heritage Musuem

It is a very old 3 storeyed building with a small courtyard. You will be able to see some of the farming tools, cattle shed and also people brewing alcohol at the courtyard. The ground floor is also basically storage and cattle shed and also store some stuff that are needed to load a horse. On the middle floor, it's the granary. People use to store their harvest on the first floor. On the top floor is where the family lives. They cook, dine, and sleep. Even the offering room is on the top floor.

If you want to dine differently than normal restaurants, there is a restaurant within the museum colony. You may like to at least try Bhutanese butter tea Suja and also the locally brewed alcoho ara.
