Mobile Exhibition



Museums do not imply a permanent building that houses definite collections where visitors come during their spare time. There are many people who are not able to visit the museum in person owing to distance, lack of financial ability and such other problems. The museums all over the world have begun the trend of taking themselves to the people outside the immediate boundaries of the museum building, so that these people are not deprived from knowing about the museums exhibits as well as its activities. Following this trend the Gandhi Smarak Sangrahalaya, Barrackpore has recently initiated its Mobile Unit by visiting different schools in various areas of West Bengal. The theme of the programme is Swadhinata Senani Smarane - Desher Kathha Dasher Kathha.
This activity has started since the financial year 2015-16. For the segment Swadhinata Senani Smarane The Sangrahalaya has a mounted mobile exhibition set Alokchitre Teen Mahajibon (three great personalities in photographs- Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, Mahatma Gandhi and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose) made especially for such programmes, for exhibiting at the premises of the various schools of West Bengal, especially the remote areas. Several documentaries on Mahatma Gandhi, Freedom Movement of India as well as cultural and environmental issues are presented. An audio-visual quiz on Mahatma Gandhi and his contribution to our country is conducted for the students. The winners of the quiz are given prizes.
The schools interested in organizing such activities in their schools are requested to contact Gandhi Smarak Sangrahalaya by filling up the Application Form with necessary details and send it to the address of the Sangrahalaya or by e-mail (gandhimuseum.120@gmail.com).
