Whether you love history or not, Bhopal’s museums are a delight for you

When visiting a place of history and culture, one always wants to see tangible pieces and hence, artifacts and recovered relics often get ignored inside the museums they are stored in. 3 of such exist on Bhopal’s Shyamala hills, but the fun part is that they come with a twist. Be it the newly constructed and colorful Tribal Habitat museum, the 200-acre spread Indira Gandhi Manav Sanhralaya or the excavation galore inside the State Museum.

Here’s an immersive documentary that explores the museums, hears from its curators, why the galleries matter and takes you through the paths of history, in its most real form.

These are things from the museums that left us in shock and awe.


  • IGRMS has an actual set of rock paintings inside their facility, which is spread, across 200 acres.


  • The tribal habitat museum has actual tribes coming in and doing their interiors and crafts.


  • Whenever the tribes visit the museum, they live in their respective houses.


  • There are multiple events and exhibitions put forth by the various tribes of India.


  • The mountain on which the museums are situated is also sometimes known as the museum hill.


  • When you see the hill from the top/aerial angle, you will notice that the houses seem like a cluster of many tribes have come and settled there.

This is a partnered post.
