Directory of Museums in India 2003
Directory of Museums in India 2003
Description
About the Book:

The first edition of the Directory of Museums in India was published in the year 2000. This now is the 2nd edition. In this edition many new museums have been added. More information on each museum has been given, what changes have taken place in any particular museum has also been added.

The Directory of Museums in India was prepared with the objective of collecting at one place all the basic information on museums, the type of information normally required by any prospective visitor/tourist. For each museum in the country, it gives full address, telephone numbers, opening and closing time, closed days, entrance fee, the types of collections the museum has, and so on. It also mentions about the publications of each museum, whether photography is permitted. It also gives valuable information on the availability of guide services or holding of lectures or film shows. At the end, as guide to the visitor, the type of museums, whether it is archaeological, ethnological, art museum, or science museum, etc. is also indicated.

In the Appendices, names of cities where museum are located have been arranged alphabetically, mentioning in which state that particular city or town is located and the museums which are situated in that city. Each museum has been given an identity number and the identity numbers of those museums that are available in a particular city are mentioned against each city and therefore location of museums in that city is easy.

Another Appendix is a cross-reference of the type of museums and where they are located.

Yet another Appendix gives information on the number of museums in each State, State-wise distribution of types of museums, Controlling Authority of each museum, and similar other information.

This is the only book of its type on Indian Museums where all the relevant date useful for visitors, tourists, museum persons, scholars, libraries and planners is available.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
