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
