An amazing collection this museum has with over 10 separate galleries. A very supportive staff and a beautiful building and an even better garden . A ticketed museum but not very expensive.

I went to Allahabad Museum. The museum is most famous for its rock sculptors, the miniature paintings from Rajasthan, terracotta from Kaushambi, literary and artwork from Bengal School of Art. It is great place to go.
