Sanskriti Museum of Everyday Art

 

This Museum was established in 1984 to create an environment for the preservation of India’s heritage, and to showcase objects that demonstrate excellence in craftsmanship and conceptual innovation, be it in design or functionality.

Objects of everyday life connected with the manners and customs, beliefs and practices of the urban and rural populations of India are displayed in the Sanskriti Museum of Everyday Art. Creativity and culture permeate every aspect of Indian life. The practical and innovative objects on display exemplify the exuberant imagination and aesthetic creativity of craftspeople from all over India. Covering objects used throughout the cycle of life-from childhood to old age-the collection begins with objects from the child's world into that of the student and young adult, proceeds into that of the settled householder and then moves towards the grand finale of life, when spiritual pursuits traditionally take over.
