Oldest Museum in india This is the most astonishing and amazing national museum to see, learn and enjoy. It is also a heritage museum. Entry fee is very cheap (Not for Foreigners). Lot of things to see. From mummies to dinosaurs fossil, old statues, coins, miniatures, science stuff. Everything is real and it's much better maintained now than before. There is no cafeteria open. There are fans in the building but no air conditioning so you might feel suffocation at some places. It is one of oldest museums in the world, founded in 1814. Fantastic mummy and good displays, well presented however not child-friendly. Good Indian art with solid explanations. Presented well. Poor presentation of all fossils and no written explanations in Hindi, Bengali or English. The Museum has very little information about the items there and a Lot of parts were closed for Renovation If you're into history or such stuff, you should make a visit.
One of the best place for historians and people interested in Indian History. A place full of priceless information,articles and many more. There are many things to see so if anyone visits....he or she must have ample time in hand. The most required thing is patience.
Thinking of a family outing? You can't miss this place. It has Egyptian essence with oceanic beauties, circumscribing a rectangular ground. It has a big store for Indian histories along with world history. You might enjoy some rest while walking from one section to the other. One of the best place ,according to me.
Its collection of historically important articles of human civilization for thousands of years...also rare collection of animal stuffed materials, skeletal remains as well as whole Skeletons or fossils are available for observation. Recent renovation and restoration of mammals & birds gallery are really commendable work by Indian museum authority. But brushing new coat of paints during recent restoration work in mammal gallery on very old mammalian skeletons and staffed materials made these rare specimens looks artificial. It is really unfortunate!!
Quite an exciting place. Heaven for antique lovers. Entry fee for indians is Rs 20. For foreigners its Rs 500. Quite drastic. Anyway. The place is big enough. Its well maintained and clean. There are different sections. The section for aquatic life is a must see. One section remained closed. I have heard it to be remained closed for a long time. Kids will find the place exciting. Especially the section where a real mummy is lying peacefully in display. Hope you guys will have a jolly time with you family, full of excitement.
