  • Amazing place, one of it's kind in India. A true replica of various tribal communities' dwelling and their culture. Must visit for kids. Gives you a glimpse how enriched our country's tribal culture is.
  • Highly recommended place if you're in Bhopal. It has a huge collections of items used by Indian tribes. You would also find models of houses used by different tribes. It would take about 2-3 hours depending on your interest level. Please take your personal vehicle if you want to see everything on the campus. Otherwise the main exhibition building has many things to see.
  • This place has been made to preserve the old traditional things & instruments from various parts of our country. Spread over a very large area, it is a beautiful place to visit but remember to take a vehicle along. There is a ticket fee for entry. I loved the concept of building such a place as it will be highly valuable to preserve the things as in generation to come, those things will be lost forever.
  • Museum of Mankind Bhopal is a tribute to the tribal community of the country. It is one of the few places in the entire world that has huge collections hailing from the pre-historic era. The museum is spread across a vast area of two hundred acres of land on the Shamla hills. The gallery is an open air exhibition of various tribal artifacts and specimens hailing from the tribal villages in India. It is a unique destination that holds a vast library that includes audio and video archives besides innumerable ethnographic specimens. The museum has been renamed as "Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sanghralaya" following an honest effort to restore the ancient tribal culture
