Allahabad Museum - Review

The museum is located in the spectacular Chandrashekhar Azad Park and is one of the largest and best museums in India. The well kept and beautiful gardens and lawns enhance the charm of the place. It started with a small collection of models of birds and animals in 1931 under the Allahabad Municipality, but the number increased at such fast pace that a need for separate arrangement to keep all the collections arose. Soon the foundation stone for the museum was laid down by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in 1947 and the construction of the museum was completed in 1952. The galleries were also declared open on the same year.

If you are interested in learning the heritage of India, this is the perfect place for you. It has one of the largest collections of sculptures, terra cotta artifacts and other items. The number of galleries here is 18 and each gallery is rich with a wide collection of archaeological findings of the pre-historic era, stone sculptures, bronze seals, precious and semi precious stones, coins belonging to Gupta and Kushan dynasties, paintings, documents in Sanskrit and so on.

Some of the special attractions in the galleries are:

  • A gallery with photographs showing the life and achievements of Mahatma Gandhi. It also contains coins, postal tickets etc. issued by different countries in honor of the Father of Nation.
  • Gandhi Smriti Vahan, which carried the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi immersed in the Sangam on 12th February.
  • Nehru Gallery, which supplies you with a lot of information on Jawaharlal Nehru.
  • Gallery on India’s struggle for freedom.
  • Pistol of Chandrashekhar Azad.
  • A collection of pre-historic paintings of India.
  • A carved sandalwood chariot with ivory sculptures of Krishna and Arjun.
  • A collection of modern paintings by contemporary artists.

It takes almost 3 hours to fully explore the museum and it is sure to supply you with a lot of valuable information.
