About Government Museum

Government Museum, also known as Rani Mangammal District Museum, was established by the State Department of Museums in 1983 in the cantonment area. Later, it was moved to Rani Mangammal Mahal in 1997. Nowadays, it is managed by Public Works Department. The museum is very close to famous Rockfort Temple. It has rare collection relating to zoology, geology, history, anthropology and epigraphy. It is visited by a large number of people as it exhibits artifacts of the ancient era. You can find earthen and metal molds, old fossils, palm-leaf manuscripts, stone inscriptions and ancient paintings in the indoors of the museum. The tools and sculptures from Megalithic, Palaeolithic and Neolithic periods are also set on displays. The museum has an independent zone displaying the tribal items. This zone also includes the models of Pachamalai Hills and Kohli Hills. The coin collectors can have a view of the magnificent heap of ancient Indian coins in the museum. You can also explore a unique collection of a variety of insects, birds, and mammals.
