“Life of Buddha”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

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.

“CGI Buddha”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

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 chance to sit unhassled for 20 minutes.

“worth a visit if you have the time”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

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.

“Buddhism in Brief”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

If you have some extra time on hand then visit the museum which
screens some interesting documentaries on Buddhism. Displays and artifacts are minimal.
