Museum will tell you about the once affluent state Orrisa. The museum is divided into several sections dedicated to painting, sculptures, cultural heritage of the state, the natural habitats, culture, the tribal life etc. If you love to know the state, do visit. Tickets are very cheap, just Rs 10/.

Located at a walkable distance from railway station, houses a very good collection to tell the story of Orissa. One can spend 2 hours to get to know the history behind Odisha. Closed on Mondays. Would definitely recommend it.
