Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya

Museum in Bhopal

A kind of tribal safari park, only without the tribes, this large complex reveals the huge ethnic diversity within Indian territory. Authentic dwellings from all around the country, built and maintained by Adivasis (tribespeople) using traditional tools and materials, dot the hillside.

Indoor exhibits shine a light on the arts, beliefs, rituals and crafts of numerous tribal and other groups. Also within the grounds are 30 prehistoric rock shelters with ancient paintings.
