about government museum of puducherry

Government Museum of Puducherry offers an interesting and exciting experience to tourists.  The sculptures and remains of excavation are some of the findings from the Arikamedu Roman settlement. Also, arms, weapons, burial urns, glass beads have been taken from the Chola, Pallava, Vijaynagar and Nayaka periods. The museum is distinct and provides a rare and fascinating glimpse into the French culture resembling the one between the 17th -20th century. Stone sculptures, paintings, exquisitely carved furniture and other artefacts from the French chapter of Pondicherry’s history can be seen here.

Recently, experts from La Rochelle and INTACH were roped in to renovate the museum. The exhibits are better lighted and ordered now, and very soon interactive multimedia facilities will be installed to make the visit more engaging.
