Jharkhand is a state which has a wide range of cultural, historical and artistic heritage. For a long it has been known for its mineral wealth. The need for giving the culture heritage of Jharkhand its due place and importance has of late been felt. Consequently, serious efforts have been made after the formation of this state in the year 2000. The establishment of State Museum in 2009 at Hotwar, Ranchi is an important step in this direction.
The State Museum at present has several galleries which display different aspects of cultural heritage, especially those related to the state of Jharkhand. We have galleries separately classified in order to display the anthropological features, especially those related to the tribal way of life. The sculptural section has art objects representing different sculptural styles and iconographic manifestations. Potteries and other artifacts retrieved from archaeological excavation and so on.
