About Museum of Kangra Art

Kangra was a former princely state of Himachal Pradesh, which is known for patronizing the art of Kangra Painting. The Museum of Kangra Art is located at Kotwali Bazar of Dharamshala and was inaugurated in 1990. This museum is unique in the way it showcases relics of Buddhist and Tibetan culture in terms of rare artifacts, sculptures, and pottery pieces. It also boasts of a collection of some very rare and old coins. Tribal related articles like jewelry, wood carvings, and traditional costumes are among the major attraction of the museum. These belong to different Archaeological periods. Miniature paintings from the 17th century give the onlookers an insight into the ethnicity and customs of the Kangra valley. An interesting thing about the way articles are arranged here is that you can find a contrast of two different periods. Two sections one housing paintings from the 5th century while the other displaying modern arts bring out this contrast and notable differences in cultures of the two periods. People from different parts of the country enroll themselves for certification courses on Kangra paintings that the museum facilitates in collaboration with renowned artists.
