About State Museum

The State Museum of Madhya Pradesh is one of India’s best-designed museums. It has a modern building designed to catch a lot of natural light and wide spaces accessible by ramps. The museum showcases an interesting style of architecture. There are over 16 themed galleries inside the main building, each dedicated to the sculptures, excavated objects, pre-historic articles and fossils, manuscripts, ancient textiles, paintings, currencies, military arms and weapons, artifacts of the royal families and articles. All of these are said to be associated with India's struggle for freedom. The museum also houses reproductions of the Buddhist Bagh Cave paintings that were destroyed, along with 84 rare Jain bronze articles from the 8th and 11th century. There are Avalokesteshwaras of Lamaism and Saivite sculptures seen here. Miniature paintings at the museum showcase the elegant and graceful lifestyle of the people from the olden times.
