bhopal's museums

tribal museum

exhibitions of tribal cultures of madhya pradesh: with homes, objects, rituals, ceremonial structures, games, paintings, musical instruments (and more) on display.

the exhibitions were illuminating, and the work on display was colourful and vibrant ; unfortunately, the lighting in several galleries was atrocious, forcing me to document them in monochrome. also: several exhibits may not have been photogenic (and, hence, not photographed), but were nonetheless powerful to experience.

national anthropological museum

i only had a brief look at this expansive museum, as we drove past structures brought over from different regions in india (deserts, hills, forests, plains, etc). i believe a future two-day visit is in order (preferably, during the winter).

gratitude: to aman for inviting me to bhopal, and to rohit for pointing me toward bhopal’s museums.
