The Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art was founded in 1945 by Jacques Marchais (1887-1948), who was a remarkable American woman and early collector of Tibetan and Himalayan art. Located in the Lighthouse Hill section of Staten Island, the Museum resembles a Tibetan monastery and is the earliest example of Himalayan style architecture in the United States. The collection is from Tibet, Nepal, Northern China and Mongolia and the Museum features a permanent installation and rotating exhibits. The Museum is open to the public Wednesday -Sunday from 1:00 PM - 5:00PM, Saturdays only in January.
