An unexpected diamond! A museum that deserves to win prices. Well maintained and beautiful display of homes of different tribes in the State, artifacts, stories told in creative ways. They have used the available space (very high ceilings) very well. I could have walked around, entering houses, climbing the different structures, for hours. Very nice display of traditional children games.

I have no words to describe the museum!!!
I have been to quite a few but nothing prepared me for this. I was completely taken by surprise right from the moment I stepped into it.
Unlike other museums, a tribal museum needs to understand and project all aspects of tribal life while at the same time presenting it to us in a way that we understand and respect.
Recognizing that tribal cultures in India are passed on from generation to generation, the museum has showcased the 7 tribes of MP - Gond, Bhil, Baiga, Sahariya, Korku, Bharia, and Kol.
Unlike a typical boxed and boring display of artifacts, documents, etc, we were catapulted into a dreamy world of colors and artwork that if I may say so put me into a trance. Never had I seen anything like it.
Each gallery was superb and every aspect of tribal life and aesthetics was brilliantly depicted.

I truly believe that the way they lived was so much more progressive and respectful than how we live. And I am happy to note that they still follow these practices in a few places.

Indigenous communities the world over have always known how to blend belief with their traditional knowledge, draw aesthetics from things that are found around them, and live in harmony with nature.
Respecting each and everything that is part of their daily life - trees, pots and pans, animals, etc is something that we can imbibe in our day.

And the philosophy of communion is seen everywhere. From courtyard paintings to wedding ceremonies and to other festive occasions it’s everywhere.
Everything that they did and everything that was there, was there for a reason. Nothing seemed out of place.

If I may add I think they were a much more evolved society and we have a lot to learn from them.
Walking out of the museum, was like walking out of a dream. A dream that till today has mesmerized me. It was a surreal experience - one that I will cherish for years.

This is one of the excellent and different sort of museum. It presents you the lifestyle and culture of tribal people. Tickets are Rs.10 per head and Rs.50 per mobile camera. They do provide card which you need to wear if you want to take pics with mobile.

When you enter inside you will feel like you have entered into some Tribal community village. They have done amazing setup of their houses, their day to day use equipment's, their culture, their marriages etc.

They have different areas created for showing Tribal life and their festivals. One needs to walk inside as well as need to climb few steps to explore the houses, mandaps and view points.

I loved the way they have created full moon and trees. This place is not be missed when you are in Bhopal. Go there and understand about Tribal Community.

Note: Ample parking space available inside museum for your cars.

The internet was replete with praise for the MP Tribal Museum. The moment I entered, my jaw began to drop at the beauty around me... It shows the art, daily life etc. of indigenous groups using colorful displays!

The Tribal Museum presents Arte-facts from daily life alongside symbols containing meanings. Every Friday & Sunday evening, it also hosts traditional music & drama performances...

The Museum has prepared a ground where tribal & civil society, two seemingly opposite streams, orient towards each other! It's not just about the quality of its exhibits but also how they are put up that makes it stand out from the rest.

Every artifact is dramatically-lit at MPTM... It retains authenticity & richness of tribal culture & traditions! Pithora paintings, games played in yesteryear, colorful galleries, ceremonial lamps, dyodhis, chariots, crafts, traditions associated with festivals, pavilions, sculptures etc.

The Madhya Pradesh Tribal Museum is a beautiful building in every way... My salutations to Revathi Kamath, the architect who's designed it! Even the paths leading in & out are designed strikingly beautifully.

The MP Tribal Museum has a retail outlet, called Chinhari, from where you can buy handicrafts to take home... It's a gigantic lamp at its entrance which is worth seeing!

After having visited, I can now understand why the Tribal Museum is one of the biggest attractions in Bhopal. I surely fell in love with it...

The tribal museum & state museum are co-located. Adequate parking is available inside the complex. The entry ticket is just Rs.10 for Indian visitors. Photography costs another Rs.50 . The museum also has a mini restaurant with light refreshments. A adequately kitted crafts shop is also available at the entrance. Enough washrooms are available. Inside the gallery there are amazing representation of various tribes & their lifestyles. A unique tribal museum

This place is a hidden gem. Leave the collection parta, the artwork and architecture of the museum is a wonder in itself. Even non-museum lovers fall in love with the place. You will see various tribal cultures from all over India presented with an ornate style.
