Located at Bailey road in Patna, the Bihar Museum, which boasts a rich collection of antiquities, is the most recent museum developed by the state government.

“The antiquities are rare and unique. To understand and appreciate these works, people need time. In fact, many art and heritage lovers have been suggesting that the galleries remain open for longer hours. So, the visiting hour has been rescheduled,” said Anjani Kumar Singh, director general, of Bihar Museum.

Ashok Kumar Sinha, the additional director, of Bihar Museum, said the management is also considering opening food stalls on the museum premises which will offer various food options at reasonable rates.
