Relatively small museum, situated at the opposite side of Nalanda ruins. The entry fee is Rs. 5 per head. The museum preserves and displays various antiquities recovered during excavation of Nalanda including stone images and sculptures, bronzes, terracottas, inscription, iron objects, ivory & bone objects and potteries etc. arranged in four galleries and the main hall. Some of the displayed collections included statues of Buddha, huge earthen jars, photographs of excavation sites etc. When we visited, certain repair jobs and re-arrangement of collections were going on.

Nalanda Archaeological Museum is just opposite to Nalanda ruins. We visited the same with entry ticket of Rs.5 per person; open from 9 AM to 5 PM. The museum displays various artifacts discovered from the ruins during excavation including statues of Buddha, earthen potteries, various terracota figures, semi-precious stones and alike, photographs before, during and after excavation. We spent around 20 minutes in the small museum.

This small museum has preserved samples of ruins which were excavated from the original site. Many stone idols are kept which are almost 2 millenniums old.

Barely 100 metres away from the Nalanda ruins is the museum. Very nicely maintained and catty remnants from the excavation.

Very nice museum consisting of various galleries storing various statues, artefacts and similar items. Most of them are damaged since they are from 5th century. But highly recommended.

The museum is located opposite the Nalanda ruins and houses priceless artifacts made of stone, metal and mud, excavated from the site. Some of them have been damaged. Charred remains of rice (part of Nalanda was destroyed by fire) are stored in a bowl.

This is just opposite to the Nalanda University remains. It shows the excavated idols of Lord Buddha and other deities made up of black basalt stone and some other less commonly known materials. Placement of idols is good and cleanliness is maintained. Entry fee is Rs 5 per head which anyone can afford. Not for much time to spend but yes once can spend 30 minutes to see and read the artifacts.
