A two room small museum displaying tens of important historical religious idols. One should read the description written for idols to know about them. Mobiles and shoes not allowed inside. 15-20 minutes viewing time is enough for the museum. It is around 300m before the Jogeshwar Temples on left hand side of the road while coming from Almora. One has to ask for location otherwise it may not be visible while driving.

A mini-museum that is maintained very neat and clean. The statues have some descriptions also. Shoes have to be removed for visiting the museum also but thankfully they have a carpet all over the floor.

The Museum is situated close to the famous Jageshwar Dham Temple. It is a small museum but have some old historical facts about the Jageshwar temple. Time required is 15-25 mins maximum.

If you are a history buff you LL really like this small museum. The 9-13th century idols from jageshwar dham have been placed here
You LL see beautiful, intricately carved stone statues which will leave you mesmerised. It hardly takes 20-30 min to complete the tour but definitely worth it.

Located very close to the Jageshwar Dham temple complex, the Archaeological museum is really a treasure trove for history and iconography lovers. It is very well maintained, and you will need to open your shoes to enter this place (although I am not sure whether that is for cleanliness as shoe dust might damage the artifacts, or for religious reasons, as they objects in display are idols of Hindu gods and goddesses not very far away from the original temple complex). We were dying and pleading to take photographs, but photography is not allowed there at any cost. Another thing to note is that museum stays closed on Mondays, so plan ahead.

One should thank ASI for maintaining an excellent on site museum around 100 meters from main temple complex located in the Jogeswar valley. It houses nearly 75 sculptures mostly from the local sites.
The main central hall has two of the most important display. An unique ‘asthadhatu’ [Alloy usually consists of gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, tin, iron and antimony or mercury] standing posture of devotee king “Pona Raja”. It is superbly ornamented sculpture and literally seems to be of southern origin. It must be a rare find and raises significant unanswered questions as evident from lack of asthadhatu sculpture to be found in Uttarakhand. Other noted sculpture is of the four armed deity ‘Lakulisha’ sitting in Padmasana posture. It holds a scared book, fruit and arm stick in unbroken hands. Both of these sculpture will mesmerize every visitor.
Some of the sculptures worth mentioning are 1. Uma-Maheswara 2. Parvati, 3. Mahisasuramardini, 4.Surya, 5. Navgraha Panel, 6. Vishnu, 7 Stone Tablets.[Some pertinent details can be provided.]
Regular buses/taxis are plying from Almora to Artola village lying on the highway towards Pithoragarh and one has to walk nearly three and half Kms. to reach the museum with the ornamented gate at the entrance. One has to enter the details in the log book and walk inside in bare feet. The premises is neat and clean in stark contrast to nearby places. One must thank ASI for a job well done. But It will be appreciated by one and all if they start permission to take non-professional photography at a reasonable payment which will go a long way in establishing their credential like many other museums all over the world.

Very nice place. There are 60 artifacts displayed in the museum recovered from Jageshwar group of temples and vicinity. It's just in front of Almora main bus stand. This museum should be handed over to ASI.All the items are very beautiful and priceless. Proper maintenance is required. There is no entry fee for museum.Visiting hours 10:30am - 4:30Pm , weekly holiday is Monday.We liked it very much.

helps to imagine what archaeologists must have felt when they discovered the statues in this dense forest away from human intervention
