Just a few collection of local items of Bishnupur. This place is small with few limited collections. The terracotta collections are the only things worth as a great collection here.

I'm a Japanese living in Delhi. Visited here with a friend from Kolkata. The only museum in Bishnupur when I visited. Tiny one with limited number of items. Not significant nor interesting to me. Just took a few minutes to look through here. Sorry.
