The Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya (IGRMS), also known as “The Museum of Mankind” is an open-air anthropology museum that celebrates many traditions and cultures of India. An initiative by the Government of India, it displays the cultural evolution of India in the most detailed manner. Spread across the Shamla hills in Bhopal, it covers a sprawling 200-acre of area. Being the only museum of its kind, it tells the story of mankind in time and space. The museum exhibits around 40 more tribal cultures and actual-size dwellings of various Indian tribes in different eco-climatic zones of India. The most interesting part of this exhibition is the actual size of dwellings and display that has been built directly by the folk and the tribal communities. It also displays a brilliant collection of pre-historic painted rock shelters, traditional technology used in the earlier days, a trail based on the mythological beliefs of Indian tribes, and sacred groves. Apart from all this, it has a modern-looking in-door museum, that displays a collection of tribal costumes, arts and crafts, agricultural and household implements, and other objects. There is a well-stocked library, audiovisual archives and a huge collection of ethnographic specimens.
