Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya, also renowned as the National Museum of Humankind, is an exemplary anthropology complex located in Bhopal.
The main aim which laid to its foundation was to explain the evolution of mankind and its rich culture with reference to our country. Also known as Museum of Man, the structure is spread over an area of about 200 acres and situated on the Shamla Hills within the city
Mrs. Indira Gandhi took the complete charge and worked on this project. With the help of Anthropological Survey of India, she later proposed a plan to construct this Sangrahalaya, which works on the distinct values of common masses and issues related to the life of an individual. Once you reach the museum you can see the broadly categorized exhibitions for the interest of public, which are categorized based on some generic facts namely: Periodical exhibitions, Indoor Galleries, Open Exhibitions, Ongoing Exhibitions, Travelling and Special Exhibition, forming the base of this complex. Clusters of these demonstrations were developed and are opened for the public.
