Assam State Museum Travel

The State Museum operated by the Assam government is located near Dighalipukhuri tank. The museum is extremely popular due to its amazing (envious is the right word) anthology of antiques right back to the prehistoric times. The collection boasts of some of the most authentic prehistoric sculptures, metal, ivory paintings, woodwork and costumes etc.

The museum was instituted in 1940 and has since made every effort to incorporate every aspect of the lifestyles of Assamese community. The reconstructed tribal huts where one can walk right through them and examine them are result of such efforts. The display of weaving and musical instruments is another step in right direction.

Open from 10 am to 5 pm (summer) upto to 4.30 pm (winters) and closed on Mondays, IInd & IVth Saturdays. The museum permits photography only after obtaining permissions.
