Himachal State Museum -Simla

statemuseum3State museum’s in India are pretty standard
and this was no different .
There is the pre-history gallery
and the anthropology gallery
followed by mannequins
in traditional attires.

The exhibit does not do justice to the
rich culture and history of these places.

Often times, the information is also not updated
For instance the architectural and sculptural map of India
does not include any of the monuments from the Northeastern states.

It feels careless
museum after museum
we never update ourselves and
it spoils the museum-going experience…
