The City Museum Kathmandu (CMK) is a one-of-a-kind museum and gallery housed in a brand new contemporary minimalist building in the heart of the city.

What makes CMK a must-visit? Our permanent collections of breathtaking archival photos, our modern exhibits showcasing the country’s active talent, the ancient bricks we’ve laid on the floor of our museum, Nepal’s finest coffee beans you can enjoy at our coffee bar, and exclusive products you can shop out our specialty store are just some of the reasons.

The Museum is home to CMK’s permanent collections, primarily archival photos belonging to the three families that pioneered photography in Nepal.

The Gallery is CMK’s contemporary arm. It will exhibit the country’s active talent, and host event series that include talks, screenings, and workshops.

Apart from being an exquisite exhibition space, CMK is designed as a premium event space for private and corporate events. It offers all modern amenities required, as well as catering needs for events such as Seminars, Conferences, Workshop, Talk programs, Screenings, Private meetings, Cocktail Receptions, Book launch.

For art and photo exhibitions, we offer both the Museum and the Gallery spaces, including frames as well as the museum’s custom built wooden light boxes.
