The Orissa State Museum

The origin of Orissa State Museum can be traced back to the year 1932. Its foundation was laid when Professor N. C. Banerjee and Professor Ghanshyam Dash of Ravenshaw College, two famous historians, initiated the task of collecting archaeological treasures from different places. At that time, the museum was started within the college premises only. It was later in 1938 that, the Government of Orissa formally declared it as the Orissa State Museum.
