The Indian Museum was extremely interesting. Apparently it is the oldest museum in India and ninth oldest in the world. It dates back to 1814. It has a new gallery full of Masks from different regions and traditions in India. These were absolutely lovely, but then I specialise in mask. For others the galleries of fabrics and art work, including some painting by famous Indian artists, were fascinating. There were large amounts of big boned skeletons, fossils and, apparently, mummies somewhere but I was less interested in those. I was there for 3 hours and only saw a part of it. Be aware that you're not supposed to take food in - I had 2 bananas which I was allowed on the grounds I wouldn't eat them while inside - they caused the guards some amusement! There was plenty of space to walk around slowly even though there were a lot of visitors. The Victoria Memorial and St Pauls are a short walk away if you want to cover all three on the same day. The building has a faded grandeur and is clearly in need of investment for its upkeep. Well worth a visit. Closed on Mondays.

Visited this place during my Kolkata visit though I had no idea it’s closed on every Monday so was lucky for me that I was in city for more day and hence able to see it and it was good experience for me as I like history and love to spend time to read and note down things, though this place really need more funds so this can be maintained and staff to my surprise was not in uniform at all
