The Exhibition in Vienna

The exhibition in the Museum für Völkerkunde Wien was opened on November 10, 1997 and ran until March 30, 1998. With almost 100.000 visitors, it was to become one of the most successful exhibitions of this museum's history. A large part of the exhibition objects were on loan from the Royal Government of Bhutan. From Europe, the most beautiful artifacts from the most important private and museum collections were presented.

A continuously told story established a thematic connection between all of the rooms.
