This museum is situated near Ahar Cenotaphs. It's not visited by travellers much but is a great aid to know about history. Its well maintained inside but exterior and facilities needs to be spruced up to restore charm of this place.

Not many people know about this place but it is worth revisiting the history. Though it is not that well-maintained, but we liked how people in mesolithic age lived with pottery artefacts. The Ahar site from where the things were unearthed is closed to general public and is just a minutes' walk away from the museum.

Ahar has a glorious four thousand years of history, even older than the Harappan civilization. In 1951-52 the Archaelogy and Museums department began the excavation of Ahar. In 1960-61 the department collaborated for horizontal excavation with the Deccan college, Pune. Records claim it was an uninhabited civilization known as Tambavati Nagari of Tamravats. Many artifacts dating back to 2000 B... More
