Exploring the Jacques Marchais House Museum of Tibetan Art & Samadhi Garden

Loading Experiences

Join New York Adventure Club for a private exploration of the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, the former residence of famous 19th-century child actor Jacques Marchais, which resembles an authentic Tibetan mountain monastery.

Our special experience, conducted before the museum opens to the public, will include:


  • An overview of pioneering American woman Jacques Marchais (1887-1948), an important collector and respected expert on Tibetan art.
  • The history and story surrounding the 1945 house designed by Marchais, which sits on Staten Island’s Lighthouse Hill, one of the highest points on the eastern seaboard.
  • A look inside the first Himalayan-style buildings to be built in the United States, which also served as the first Museum world devoted solely to Tibetan art.
