About It

Every museum has its own character and personality. With a view to awakening the people morally and culturally through the ideas and ideals of Krishna and to enlighten the people the history of the region, the Srikrishna Museum was established by Kurukshetra Development Board in the year 1987. Subsequently on 28 July 1991, it was shifted to the first block of the museum building after its inauguration by the then President of India, Sh. R. Venkataraman. The second block to the museum was added in the year 1995. Recently the third block of the museum building has been raised which accommodates the Multimedia Mahabharata & Gita Gallery. H.E. President of India Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil inaugurated this gallery on 8th February 2012.

The artefacts displayed in the museum represent Krishna as godhead, an avatara, of Vishnu, a great Philosopher, an epic hero, an astute statesman and a supreme lover. The personality and teachings of Krishna have permeated into the national ethos and his exploits and miracles are a source of inspiration for the artistic expressions manifested in all parts of the country in their traditional folk and classical art forms. The theme of the museum is Srikrishna, Kurukshetra & Mahabharata. So, the art objects and antiquities related to the themes on different mediums have been arranged in different galleries of the museum.

With a view to impart ideas and ideals enshrined in the Mahabharata and to enlighten the people through the philosophies of Krishna, Bhishma, Vidura and other ancient philosopher and seers in state -of - the -art manner, the multimedia Mahabharata & Gita Gallery has been set up as an extension of the existing Sri Krishna Museum. The gallery has been established by Haryana Tourism in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Govt. of India under the project 'Integrated Development of Panipat-Kurukshetra- Pinjore Circuit'.

The Gallery here represents the Mahabharata in a linear fashion. Through murals, mannequins, paintings and scenographies the story of Mahabharata has been depicted in an emphatic and effective way.
