This is a very well curated and preserved museum - by far the best in the state. Each section is thoughtfully laid out and logically sequenced one after the other for a seamless tourist experience. Worth a good 2-3 hours if for nothing else, then at least for its beautiful architecture.

This Museum was inaugurated a few years back. There are numerous halls displaying art, culture, tradition, industries of Odisha. There is an entire Gallery depicting the sacred Lord Jagannath & the history attached to Him! A must see sightseeing - one can easily spend a couple of hours here.

A Museum of a similar nature should be constructed in each state showcasing the uniqueness of that State. A truly commendable initiative of the Government of Odisha!!!

Its well designed museum with serene environment. AV theatre as nice small movies worth watching, will collectively take almost 40 minutes! The actual museum is very well displayed in various sections which are numerically tagged. Pots and Tulsi Pot are still fresh in mind! Metal and silver artefacts are eye catching. wooden panels of door are ancient beautiful, one would want them on own door too! Textile including silk are wonderfully displayed, reminding of great culture of Odisha! The staff is courteous and helpful, adding the value to museum.

Started in 2018, this museum celebrates the traditional arts and crafts of Odisha known as Utkala in the ancient times referring to the supremacy of the arts here. The primary galleries showcase the various arts and crafts still being practiced across Odisha and their religious and socio-economic significance.

Visitors are encouraged to go through the audio visual show before exploring the galleries which was very unique and went a long way in enjoying the displays even without any guides. The museum has several friendly and knowledgeable staff posted in each gallery. Apart from this adequate information is also provided in each room.

Several workshops were going on in a separate section while the open air amphitheater nestled amidst trees is ideal for live art performances. The museum is spread over 13 acres with lush foliage and has a separate open-air play area to keep small kids busy.

Despite several galleries still being developed, the museum offers a comprehensive and colorful introduction to the rich artistic heritage of Odisha.
