Inside its a very old 3 storeyed building with a small courtyard. On the ground floor, you will see it's basically storage and cattle shed. 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
