Give yourself time because its an intense educational crash courses at the tip of your finder. Security is always tight which means lockers are available for your cellphone and bags. I unfortunately wanted to use cell phone as camera big mistake hence no photos.

We could not find this museum for love nor money. We asked at the information desk (who sent us to the archaeological museum a km away) and also at the bookshop within the temple complex and he had never heard of it.

this museum is the hard work of a technocrat. Through a multi media projector various aspects of Buddha life are demonstrating with narration of the story. One will flow with period of the story being shown. it is situated just at the entrance of Mahabodhi temple.

If you don't know the story of the Buddha then this is a curious computer genarated cartoon of his life which has him wandering Bihar state like a Terrhhawk Puppet! That is still manages to be emotionally moving is testament to the Buddha. You won't learn much about the Temple or it's renovation and history - a nice diversion and... More

Not "wow" but well presented and interesting if you have some spare time in Bodhgaya. No need to stick to the timings btw, they can screen your language on request.
