IGRMS is a completely different concept which has brought down the life and living of our natives and the tribals. There amazing ways of living out of this techie world shows how beautifully we had understood the nature and lived with it before and how they are still sustaining it in smaller and interior places. Untouched and pure, the place... More

When i visited this place,had a certain pre-notion how a museum should look like. This is totally opposite which provides you glance in how the people across India live. Various types of huts, what kind of tools they use etc. Good place, but you need to be prepared to walk a lot, which involves uneven hilly territory as well.

Some good exhibits - with some vibrant colours. However, this was not easy to find (Uber driver had to ask 3 or 4 times) and the whole place is shabby, with poor signage.

The infrastructure is what any museum authority will give his right hand for. However, it is unloved and uncared for. An astonishing collection of tribal assets lying under leaking roofs, unlit or ill-lit galleries and zero audio visual guides. Typical sarkari set up. Further, it covers only India, even though it says it is for mankind. The collection and presentation... More

It is a museum with difference - wide and roomy galleries with artistic decor and authentic description in immense variety. Having seen a couple of international museums and being fond of museums, I felt quite impressed. It does pride to M.P. Tourism. The lay out is fantastically spread and enjoyable for a daylong visit. There is so much to seen... More

The place was developed slowly and for many residents it wasn't an attraction and then suddenly we had friends visiting and I took them to the place. Starting with the place looks barren but the moment you step in the main museum building you realize the so many people who are enjoying the galore from the past. Special mention of... More
