Why to visit Indira Gandhi Rashtraya Manav Sangrahalaya
The Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya (IGRMS), often known as the National Museum of Mankind or Museum of Man, was founded in 1985. The museum, which covers an area of nearly 200 acres, tells an interwoven tale of the development of man and civilization, with a focus on India. In Mysore, Karnataka, the museum also maintains a regional centre for the South India region. The museum is near the Upper Lake and is reachable from either Lake View Road or another road close to Demonstration School.
Through its engaging exhibitions, the museum provides a chance to study the subtlest but most aesthetic senses of the rich Indian culture and heritage. Tribal Habitat, Coastal Village, Desert Village, Himalayan Village, Mythological Trail, and Traditional Technology Park are among the 12 indoor galleries and 8 outdoor galleries that are present there. The unique painted rock shelters that this museum has along with its post-colonial collection of tribal folk art and culture make it stand out among museums. Impressive museum periodicals and travelling exhibits on a variety of subjects are quite welcoming and accommodating to tourists. The museum also has a large collection of ethnographic artefacts, audiovisual archives, and electronic documentaries.
An extensive collection of books and articles on anthropology, archaeology, museology, tribal studies, prehistory, art, architecture, etc. can be found in the reference library of the IGRMS. The museum also hosts a variety of educational events, including lectures, workshops, seminars, symposia, group discussions, conferences, and regional and cultural festivals. Students, researchers, designers, and filmmakers can conduct a wide range of studies at the museum.
