About Gass Forest Museum

Established way back in 1902, this is one of the first history museums or institutions in India to exhibit forestry and arms used in the olden days. Located in the verdant Forest College Campus on Cowley Brown Road in Coimbatore, it is the best place to experience history and wildlife back then as it existed 100 years ago. A must-see and one of the well-known tourist destinations, the museum has 10000 vivid exhibits and collections. You can find some important timber species of India here along with forestry artifacts such as non-timber goods and timber crafts. Various sections at the museum include wildlife, entomology, mycology, geology, ethnology, arms and forest engineering. It was also used during World War II to provide shelter to migrants. The exhibits are well laid out on two floors. It was recently renovated in 2015. The latest interesting feature here is a 3D diorama that showcases wildlife in its natural habitat.
