Kolkata became the administrative headquarters of the East India Company
in 1772, it became obvious that this city would become the foremost beneficiary
of British interest in Indian culture. Soon the first museum was set up
in line with the British Museum in terms of its comprehensive coverage
of art,archeology and natural sciences.
Internationally well known and having completed 185 years of its existence,
the Indian Museum is one of those heritage buildings which are well maintained
and therefore, in good shape. It is not only the oldest museum in India
but also perhaps the oldest in Asia.
