Manipur State Museum

Museum in Imphal

The two-storey state museum, on a lane off the main road that fronts Kangla Fort, has a curious collection of tribal costumes, royal clothing, 20th-century Manipuri art, musical instruments and stuffed wildlife. In its own pavilion on the outside of the building you can see an ornate and spectacular 78ft royal boat.

You may have to leave your phone, camera and bag at a counter by the museum's ticket office.
