about indian museum

Travel back in time, witnessing the beautiful displays that dot the galleries and hallways when you are in Indian Museum in Kolkata. The six sections devoted to art, archeology, anthropology, geology, zoology and industry make this the largest museum in India and one of the largest museums in the world. With its foundation in 1814, the Museum movement started in India and with the passing years from then, it truly got a new fillip and remarkable momentum. Since that time, it has so magically developed and finally culminated into the enriching existence of more than about 400 museums in our country. These sections have interactive computer screens as well which add to the fun factor to learning one can do here.
