“VIsiting the incredible India”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

I visited the Odisha state museum with my family. We felt like we have come to the ancient times of Buddha. The real heritage of India. We felt emotional the way whole proofs of Buddhism are preserved in this museum. Extraordinary.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

I think this under rated state museum is quite rich.
It has some rare archeological discoveries from 1st century BC. Beside this, it has a very interesting section of musical instrument too.

“Treasure trove”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Odisha State museum is a treasure trove for any student interested of Odisha history and culture. This museum is centrally located in the heart of the city and is easily accessible. Nominal entrance fees & camera fees are charged. There is also parking facility inside museum.
The Museum has different galleries like Archaeology, Numismatics, Mining & Geology, Natural History, & Art & Crafts of the Odisha. I personally felt that (may be because of my interest) Archaeology gallery was the best as compared to all other galleries. The Archaelogy gallery is further segregated for Jain sculptures, Buddhist sculptures etc. They mainly consist of stone carved idols and sculptures of Buddha, Thirthankara, Narayana, Ganesha, Karthikeya and vedic gods like Surya, Agni etc. Some of the idols are very unique like the “Chamunda” “Varahi” which looks well preserved. Numismatics gallery is well maintained with descriptions. Anthropology gallery is also is unique and interesting.
Must visit site in Bhubaneshwar
