Orissa State Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • The museum is really well kept, really sleek looking & overall a pleasant experience for me. Different departments have been made with good lighting to highlight the details. There's also facility of wheelchair & ramp for the differently-able. Elevator's too is provided for help. All this is interesting & on that we get to meet some artist who were readily selling their art pieces like handmade clothes, decors made of clay & a painter. The behaviours of the people was good too, but photography should be allowed or people would not be interested in going there for anything other than just casual roaming.

  • Best place if you want some quality time alone or with one friend. Can see history related things, lost birds or animal. Can know about Adibasi people's food, living style etc. It is situated in Kalpana square. Rs20 per head is charged if u want to visit. More old coins u can see there. Different old house hold items u can find there.

  • Very beautiful and peaceful museum. Visible from normal traffic. Latest and old collection of monuments,coins, architecture,statue,birds,animals available here. Very attracting is its elephant tusk architecture. You can see unbelievable statue in this tusk. So attractive. You can feel the old age peoples livelihood in this museum. And you can also saw a geological museum where you find so many metals fossils etc. A beautiful garden also present infront of it.
