Improving the museum experience
In 2017 and 2018, major areas of Shangri La will be undergoing renovation during tour times. Views of the property will be obstructed because of construction and visitors will notice heavy machinery and noise. We appreciate your understanding as we make changes to improve and preserve the museum visitor experience.
