DISCOVERY TOURS

The MACO Museum of Oriental Art and Culture organizes study trips every year, guided by scholars and experts, to deepen the knowledge of the customs and culture of the peoples living in Himalayan countries and beyond.

The general objective of the Arcidosso Museum, in organizing this type of activity, is to offer people interested in Tibetan culture, a way to deepen their knowledge through direct experience in the field.

At the same time, these activities represent, for those interested in the Museum project, a way to support it and help make it self-sufficient, helping us to raise funds to carry out future projects.
