Expansion of Tibet Museum
Work on expanding Tibet Museum has already begun in Lhasa. The expansion project which is expected to be complete in 2020 will see the building expand to 58,000 square meters. Once the expansion has been completed the museum can accommodate 7,000 visitors per day. There are more than 520,000 historical relics that, includes pottery, jade and Buddhist statues in Tibet Museum. The museum has been closed since December 2016 due to preparation for the expansion project.
