Archaeological Museum, Lothal

The Archaeological Museum at Lothal was setup in 1976. In the museum it displays artifacts recovered from the excavation conducted from 1952 to 1961. 



It showcases beads, terracotta ornaments, shell and ivory objects, copper and bronze objects, tools and potteries yielded from excavations. There are about 800 objects are on display in the museum.




Sadly photography is not allowed inside the museum. Outside the museum there is a tree and there I spotted a new bird that I had not seen before.

A very interesting museum to visit.
That's a very pretty bird - somewhat like our magpies!

Beautiful bird. Oh I just hate it when you can't do photos inside a museum. As long as you don't use a flash it should be permitted. Glad you enjoyed seeing the displays however.

It's too bad that you couldn't take pictures inside but I'm sure it was very interesting. The bird that you captured is so pretty!

It is always interesting to me the architecture of a museum - seems the style is simple to put the focus on the objects inside!
