To pass on the rich history to future generations, all museums in Andhra Pradesh will be developed, Tourism and Culture Minister RK Roja said.
The Minister visited the Bapu Museum and saw the galleries categorized into different segments. She proposed to develop “circular tourism” in Andhra by assimilating all tourist destinations, temples and museums.
To maintain harmony in the digital age, the museum was renovated with an ultra-modern vibe by the Department of Archeology and Museums. The Minister appreciated department officials for equipping the space with advanced augmented and virtual reality technologies.
The museum was renovated by spending Rs. 12.8 crore and reopened to the public on October 2, 2020.
Ms Roja said there are 1,500 ancient and rare artifacts depicting the 10 lakh-year history. She urged people to visit the museum during summer holidays as it is a place of recreation and also the best place to learn about “our rich history”. Museums at Eluru and Ananatapur would also be developed like the Bapu Museum.
