Description: Families will tour the galleries and visit the special Tibetan Shrine room where they'll see what a real Tibetan temple may look like, hear the sounds of monks chanting, and see the glow of flickering butter lamps. After learning why different shrines are made throughout the Himalayas and what they're used for, families will create their own shrine to take home.
