about state museum

Set up in year 1974 in Shimla, the State Museum was established with the view to protect and maintain the hill culture and heritage of Himachal Pradesh. Located at the Mall Road this colonial structure preserves various art forms, cultural anthropology and archaeology of this beautiful state. 

Housed in this grand Raj-style architecture, the museum has an interesting collection of nearly 10,000 amazing artifacts collected from all over Himachal Pradesh. The 6th-11th century Gupta sculptures and The Pahari miniatures deserve a special mention here as these are especially impressive. Just walk around and feel the magic of art at its best.
