Allahabad Museum, Uttar Pradesh

The Allahabad Museum, located in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh is one of the largest and leading museums of Indian Art in North India. It was initially set up in 1931 as a Municipal Museum; antiquities from Allahabad District were housed here. The collection further grew with gifts and purchase of a variety of objects including archaeological materials, stone, bronze, wood and metal sculptures, paintings, terracotta, coins, decorative arts and textile. Moreover, collections on national leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal, and eminent literary figures such as Sumitranandan Pant were also received as gift or acquired to make the collections rich and varied. Due to the wide spectrum and significance of its collections the Allahabad Museum was taken under auspices of the Government of India and declared a Central Government Museum. 

Digitization of this collection has been possible with financial support from the Ministry of Culture, Government of India.
