Banking Museum

Kolkata (Calcutta)

This professionally presented little museum brings alive the history of Indian banking using paintings, models, seals, weapons and archival materials. A star exhibit is the 'forgotten' chest in which some of Mahatma Gandhi's ashes were left for 46 years in the State Bank of India vault in Cuttack. Sign in with bank security at the entrance towards the northerly end of the big SBI tower building. You may have to present your passport.
