The National Museum
The National Museum located on the way to Swayambhunath Hill is most popular
among the Kathmandu people. It holds not only ancient artifacts, but also
interesting mementos of recent kings and recently used firearms. A visitor
to the museum will understand much about the way wars were fought in this
part of the world and the type of firearms that were used to conquer Nepal
and later to protect it from the British Raj. Other artifacts include ancient
statues, paintings, and murals. You may be interested in the doll collection
as well as the stuffed animals there. The collection of coins in the complex
includes coins going back to the second century BC as well as excellent
samples from dynasties that ruled Nepal after the birth of Christ.
