While the Assam State Museum was not at the top of my must-see-list, I am glad I did end up visiting it. I needed a break from the heat and the hustle n bustle of the city, and I did get that. Plus I got to see the rather impressive collection of sculpture, ethnography, village life, and more. The lay out and display of some of the collections is quite good (sculpture, textiles, wood, ethnography), of others not very good (coins). The signage is poor. The collections could use a good dusting and some care. But all together it is worth visiting to get a broader impression of the cultures and peoples of Assam. I spent there about two pleasant hours until I was asked to leave, at 4 PM. And the price of admission won't break the bank: 5 rupees! Finally, it's located very centrally, immediately south of the "lake" (Digholi Pukhuri Park and boating point). You're bound to pass by it at some point.

The entrance fee says it all. It is Rs 5 for which one can not get even a cup of tea in most Indian cities. I have never seen these many Indus Valley artifacts in any museum in the world. This tiny place has more objects from this civilization than the Louvre (Paris), the Met (New York), the MFA (Boston), and the British Museum (London) combined yet it is the museum where there was only one guard who was sleeping and after waking up by our presence he proceeded to SPIT INSIDE THE MUSEUM.

The Assamese paintings are so badly preserved that within next 10 years they will be gone. The ancient artifacts get a better attention but almost anyone can take any of these out at any time. I had to chase people because they were touching the 10th and 11th century's statues.

Like everything else in India, maintenance is not a word that has any meaning in his place. It was an extremely disappointing experience in that regard.

Assam Rajyik Museum or the Assam State Museum is situated near Dighalipukhuri tank on GNB Road. This museum is the perfect place to know about the history and culture of Assam. Established in 1940 with the main objective to offer knowledge about the history of Assam, this museum has a variety of invaluable exhibits from ancient time including weapons, jewelry, coins, garments and musical instruments used by tribals.

Would recommend a visit was interesting and a help in understanding the Assamesse culture. More and better signage would be helpful and make it more interesting.

The Assam State Museum is a must visit attraction and must say the most under rated as well.

It houses a variety of sculptures, artifacts from in and around Assam. Also it has a view of Assamese village life. Some of World War II arms and ammunition also find a place here.

A very very good place to know about more of the region you are visiting

Visited the museum anticipating it would be a monotonous boring tour inside , but was amazed to find Ink Pot used in 2nd Century , the culture and the sculpture so ancient dated back to from 2nd century , to world war II , soldier's masked wear , then the Capsule Bomb found in Nagaland dated back to world war II , and then if you take a tour to the traditional dress section you can see what the Kings and Queen used to wear , it was an enriching experience.

If you would like to know about the civilizations and tribes of Assam state- you would find everything in a nutshell over here.
The weapons for attack, defense and hunting are a standout for me- Everything from claws, knives, swords, bow and arrows, spears can be seen in the museum.
The Agricultural tools, fishing methods, tribal clothing, dance forms give you a sense of the way of life.
Value for your time and money.
