If you want a heart rush of anthropology, this is the place! We arrived at the Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya to know more about the tribes of India. Idols from Bastar, Life-size dwelling complex models, tribal arts, etc.

The IGRMS was so vast that we managed to cover only 2 parts of it - the Tribal Habitat & the Veethi Sankul (indoor exhibition). Also because we'd come here in the evening. I intend to return & spend a full day here...

This autonomous organization of the Government of India has done a remarkable job of making anthropology accessible & interesting to the common person... In fact, the materials which are traditionally used for construction of the tribal dwellings were transported to Bhopal for creating the replicas. Astounding!

There is nothing much inside this museum. Very few exhibits when we went there. A few small statues, tribal habitat etc. Some exhibitions are held here. The location is near upper lake on Shyamala hills. You can avoid this place if you do not have much time.

The entry ticket of the exhibition on various tribal culture is Rs.50 per person. There is lot of parking place inside the premises and the exhibition is spread over a large area. The place has a canteen, a central museum & a big auditorium. Here houses of various tribal cultures have been replicated including some handicrafts too. The whole activity may take approx 2 hours since a lot of walking is involved. It's recommended to park your vehicle next to the central museum. A must visit for children.

IGRMS is the largest anthropological museum in the country. Spread over a large area it is physically impossible to see everything in one go. If you really want to understand the anthropological history and heritage of India, plan to spend at least four hrs everyday spread over three-four days. Photography is allowed. Do not waste your time in the indoor gallery. The outdoor exhibits are worth your money. On your way from main ticket counter till parking area keep stopping to view the exhibits on both sides of the road. A nice restaurant on small hillock serves good traditional food.

This beautiful and enriching museum is located on the Shamla Hills area of Bhopal and is spread over about 210 acres of rocky and forested land.
Just a slow drive through this place is an experience in its kind. The anthropology museum depicts the history of mankind. The place has several open and enclosed exhibit places and they are usually depicting interesting subjects. Details on whats going on can be seen on their web page most of the times the site is updated and gives a fair idea on whats going on..
A must visit if you are in Bhopal. Morning and evenings are better as the days are hot on the near bare and rocky hill top.

This is a multifaceted museum. It starts by tracing the origin of mankind and then show cases the habitat, culture and day to day life in different parts of India.
The museum is exceptionally well maintained and the staff is very friendly.
A must if you are visiting Bhopal. Needs at least half a day to do full justice. Must club with the neighbouring Tribal Museum.

A walk through the history of mankind . it is an autonomous institution run by the Ministry of Culture , GOI . The human evolution at large and the evolution of tribal lives through the centuries in India are depicted in this large partly open air museum . It's an experience in itself . A half a day is perhaps needed to minutely observe the exhibits . But we missed an audio aid to take you through the place . Further. the sales counter lacks teeth . However it was a wonderful place to visit for history and anthropology enthusiasts .

It's location is very prime, with upper Lake in front and van vihar on side.
Total area is very big so it is better to go with your vehicle. Lot to see and photographed. If lucky one can get a glimpse of tiger in van vihar from here.
Happy time
