Indian Museum - Review

The Indian museum makes for a fascinating visit because of its unique exhibits and artefacts. The resident Mummy is definitely a popular crowd puller. It claims to be the largest multipurpose Museum not only in the Indian subcontinent but also in the Asia-Pacific region. The museum hosts various workshops and training programmes too. One will be able to see various objects dating hundreds of years back that explain pre-historic rituals and practices.

Indian Museum, Kolkata Reviews

  • This is one of India's oldest museums. It is big and has a wide range of artifacts for display. You might want to dedicate at the least 4hours minimum to cover the displays. The fossil section is messy. Human evolution is eye catchy. The ancient mummy on display, the ancient currency coins, livelihood of ancient humans and the prehistoric tree trunks would provoke a lot of thoughts. This is a must visit place for school students as they would be able to physically relate to some of the topics. It was however a very big disappointment to see the poor maintenance of this museum. Must visit for those who seek knowledge.

  • It is one of the oldest museum in Calcutta. The area is so vast that it takes around a day to complete the entire circulation inside. It has some of the rare collection of antiques, armor and other stuff. This place is perfect for a person who loves history. The area is easily accessible from the main road and there are lot of street food nearby . There are several sections in this museum based on their collection. I have personally spent around 3 hrs here but couldn't cover more because there were detailed description of every relic and exhibit. A must visit place for history lovers and happy learning !

  • outstanding museum. there is several rooms and halls for different types of ancient things. this museum has bones of dinosaur and different ancient animals. there is also a Egyptian mummy in this museum. It has a garden in the middle of museum. they have different types of ancient coins. also It is very big in size. you should go there if you have some interest in history.

  • Very historical and interesting .It was my first museum to visit .Great environment. Good preservation of historical artifacts. Dinosaur skeleton were great to see. There's even a whole department for spice. What a great place for learning history in interactive way. I loved the place.

  • Located near park street metro station and esplanade market, it is one of the most amazing places to visit when in Kolkata. It has a lot of sections from fossils to old paintings ,from masks to ecosystem, dinosaurs, aquatic life, etc. The museum houses one of the oldest mummies in the history which is a major attraction. It is not advisable to visit during peak summer season as the insides are not ventilated and it becomes really hot inside. You have esplanade market and many eateries near by so after the visit, that can be planned. Also, one important information is that it closes at 5 pm, so recommend to reach early as it will take at least 2 hours to visit the whole museum even if done in a speedy manner
