Allahabad Museum

MUSEUM

The Allahabad Museum located in the picturesque Chandrashekhar Azad Park (company bagh) is among the National level museums of India. The beautiful location, large sprawling green lawn and nicely laid out garden has given it a special attraction. It was originally established under the aegis of  Allahabad Municipality in 1931 with a small collection of model of birds and animals.

New Rock-art Gallery

Next time you visit Allahabad Museum, you will find yourself inside an artificially created cave where you will be watching the pre-historic Rock-art. Isn’t it interesting?

Allahabad Museum’s Green Project

The Allahabad Museum has come forward to keep track of changing eco-life by making a digital bank of the existing flora and fauna in the city.
The project would also help the museum in comparing the exisiting and past eco-life of the city.
Further, visitors would also be apprised of the species of plants and animals at the Natural History gallery of the museum.


Over the years there has been a sea change both in the concept and functioning of a museum. The museums are no more a repository of collections, rather these are centers for learning and recreation. Therefore, the museum should embark on outreach programmes, research, exploration and creative activities targeting the audience. Thus, the responsibilty of the Director is obviously becoming more arduous and challenging. Every museum has a personality of its own and the activities are intimately connected and inextricably interwoven with it. The museum often called as the index of culture of the region and when a visitor visits a museum would obviously look for getting glimpses of the city through the artifacts displayed in the museum. Allahabad has a long and varied history and the museum makes its endeavour to fulfill the aspiration of the audience by way of scientific display whereby a lay audience can understand not only the theme of the objects or the narratives but also the intricacies of making the art since the mute object cannot speak to the audeince. This year's mandate of the musuem is to develop new audiences through exhibitions, visitor facilties, educational programmes and overall improvement in visitor experience.
