Inaugural Museum Walk - Press Coverage


Inaugural Museum Walk - 16 June 2018


Second Museum Walk - 17 June 2018

Museum walk is an important activity to create awareness among people about the history and culture of Odisha. Through a museum walk association with available historic settlements and environment can be developed. It motivates tourists, and local population to visit rich cultural/ archaeological/ architectural sites. These experiences also have the capacity to sensitise local populations and in turn to preserve and conserve their own culture and heritage. Through this, a sense of pride is inculcated and people start appreciating their heritage. Museum walk is also one of the mediums to initiate community based efforts for conservation and preservation of heritage, art and crafts.
