The Bronze and Brass Museum is housed in a 15th-century Math opposite the Pujari Math at Tachapal Tole, Bhaktapur. A rich collection of domestic and ceremonial metalware is exhibited in the museum: kalash (ritual jars), ink-pots, spittoons, ordinary and ritual lamps. Open daily, except sundays, Mondays and holidays, from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Entrance fee is Rs.20 and an extra Rs.20 for cameras.
Bhaktapur-s two other museums are located at the Dattatreya Square, the old seat of royalty when Bhaktapur was the heart of the Greater Malla Kingdom from the 12th to 15th century. The Woodcarving Museum is housed in the l5 century Pujari Math, a priestly palace which itself is no less impressive than an open museum.
With its intricately carved wooden windows and doors, the building still stands witness to the artistic excellence of Newars over five centuries ago. And it is on the eastern façade of this structure where one can find the world-famous Peacock Window. This museum exhibits various wooden objects dating back to Lichhavi (400-1200) and Malla (1200-1769) periods.
The Brass and Bronze Museum, housed in the historic Chikanpa Math opposite Pujari Math, displays a wide variety of metal objects. Housed in an equally historic Math, the museum exhibits such ceremonial and household items as Kalash (ritual water vessel), sukunda, twa-deva and yekha-dalu (varieties of traditional oil-fed lamps), ordinary water vessels and jars, utensils, spittoons and so on.
