More a ranch-style house up a steep residential hill than a museum, the JACQUES MARCHAIS MUSEUM OF TIBETAN ART offers little more than what looks like a crazy lady's Buddhist antiques collection: a yak milk-based tea-making urn, an imported Siberian orange tree, a Buddhist altar, and some "chic sherpa hats of the Himalayas." The required monotone droning of the teenage docent at least inspires the bored touristy children and smiling "Free Tibet" hippies to want to end their own human suffering.
