Located above the Trongsa Dzong stands the formidable Watch Tower which has now been converted into a state of the art Museum. The Watch Tower was built in 1652 and in the olden days, the Ta Dzong or the Watch Tower had been guarding the Dzong and the surrounding villages from possible invasions. The Dzong was converted into a Royal Heritage Museum in 2008 and is dedicated to the Monarchs of Bhutan. The different galleries tell stories of ancient Bhutan and of the Kings and their achievements. A stroll inside the Museum will give an insight into the significance of Trongsa as the stronghold in the history of Bhutan. The Museum has many important artifacts including the Raven Crown of the Second King (Jigme Wangchuck), two scroll of the Oath of Allegiance to King Jigme Wangchuck and many other important religious artifacts.

Photography is not allowed inside the Museum so one has to capture everything with the eyes and enjoy the stroll capturing the intriguing history of Bhutan.

This is a small museum but definitely worth the visit. It provides a very nice short history of Bhutan in general and of the area. There are beautiful local artifacts. The museum used to be a watchtower for the attacking enemies. There are multiple galleries and one is devoted to Wangchhuck Dynasty, the current king. The tower was built by Chogyal Minjur Tenpa, the first Trongsa Penlop in 1652. Enjoy the panoramic view of the valley from the top

The 500-year-old jacket of Ngagi Wangchuk is a major attraction in the museum. The views from the roof of the museum are magnificent. One can either take a steep staircase to reach here from the town or drive here. The museum has in total 11 galleries exhibiting various artefacts of Buddhist culture and reminiscence of the royalties of Bhutan. The museum displays the remains of the Wangchuck Dynasty and works of the historical significance of Trongsa Dzong. There are dungeons in the tower where British soldiers were kept during Duar War.
