General Tour - 45 minutes.

Eleven scenes with intricately sculpted clay dioramas depict topics of the ancient yogic scripture with an exciting show of animatronics, sound and video. A self-guided enlightening magical experience!

Guided Tour - 60 minutes.

Henry Thoreau writes: 'our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial in comparison with the Bhagavad-gita' and when Einstein reads the Gita 'everything else seems so superfluous'. A guided tour would help!

The Krishna Experience - 90 minutes.

Take a guided tour, get to know the Hare Krishna history, philosophy and culture. Visit the temple and ashram next door and take Krishna lunch (prasadam). You will never forget your Krishna Experience!

To sonorous narration and ethereal music, about 200 luxuriantly costumed, nearly life-size painted clay figures enact cosmic dramas such as reincarnation, wherein twinkly diode “souls” light up in sequence between figures of an old man, a spooky corpse and a pulsating pink fetus.

Through eleven dioramas, Krishna flutters about in disguise, at the reins of the senses, on the back of a Garuda — stunningly rendered and ornamented with lightning flashes, dramatic sound effects and a booming-voiced narrator who sounds eerily familiar.

I thought it was great — better than Disneyland, really. I mean, it’s as valuable as that or the Smithsonian Institute in Washington. The sculpted dioramas look great, and the music is nice. It shows in a way that’s easy for even a child to understand exactly how the body is different from the soul, and how the soul’s the important thing.

  • This is one of the most unique museum experiences you'll ever have. It is a true hidden gem of LA and you will be wowed by the incredible detailed craftsmanship of these dioramas lovingly protected and preserved since the 1970's.

  • This is a MUST see for anyone! The dioramas are absolutely stunning and the story that unfolds during the journey is fascinating, magical, and mysterious. Walking out, one feels an overwhelming sense of pure spirituality.

About the Museum

Stunning Sculptures, Excellent Presentation

The sculptures were built by Hare Krishna artists of Los Angeles in late 70’s, using methods essentially the same as those used in ancient India. The basic materials – bamboo, rice straw, various clays, and rice husk – are the same, as are the process of finishing, painting, and dressing the dolls.
About the Bhagavad-gita

The Jewel of Yogic Wisdom

Krishna’s words of wisdom are ambrosial and pleasing to the distressed Arjuna facing death or killing of his own kinsmen. The truth of the Bhagavad-gita, Song of God, is apparent as Krishna delineates topics such as duality and unity, nature and transcendence, time and activity logically and authoratively.
