Tribal Museum

The Institute has a unique Tribal Museum which is functioning through its exhibits, research projects and planned activities as a cultural centre that attracts a large number of visitors from India and abroad. The Institute has organized a number of exhibitions inside and outside the State. The new tribal museum, ‘Museum of Tribal Arts and Artifacts’ has been set up to cater to the needs of the visitors and researchers. Steps have been taken for Live Demonstration of Art and Crafts by Tribal Artists and Artisans in the Museum Complex on all working days throughout the year by engagement of 16 Tribal Artists on payment of remuneration on monthly basis to demonstrate and prepare different kinds of culturally significant Arts & Crafts creating facilities for sale of their product. This will be a milestone for preservation, documentation, display and demonstration of the rich tribal cultural heritage of Orissa.
