  • It's one the added pleasures inside the BHU Campus. Photography is strictly prohibited inside the museum. The museum contains beautiful paintings, handmade statues and figures plus some personal belongings of the great Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya Ji who is the founder of Banaras Hindu University.
  • If you come banaras then visit this place because this place is awesome. Stone curving statue, different type of statue from metal, different type of stone statue of god, goddess and different types of paintings from gupta period, kushana period, etc and these historical things are belongs from 9-10 century, 10-15 century, 15-18 century. Free entry for visitors.
  • One of the most popular place in bhu. it contain the historical things and conserve the history.it also contain the bharat ratn of Mahamana madam Mohan Malviya.
  • This is a must visit for everyone who visits Varanasi! Huge collection of Hindu and Buddhist sculptures, paintings and world recognized miniature painting. The entry fee is very less and I recommend everyone to visit! The manager of the museum, Svantra Singh is highly knowledgeable and interactive. Not a lot of people know about this museum due to insufficient information on the official website. I suggest the website to be properly maintained with open hours (maybe 8 am to 4.30 pm) and contact numbers.
  • Kala vishwvidyala is a very good very popular place and study center then I like this
