Wonderfully curated museum.Recommended for people interested in anthropology, history and culture - and for the ones with curious minds. The place is hard to find but enlisted correctly on the map, so be patient while looking for it (the museum gate was inaccessible by car and we had to walk up to three similar buildings and ask for directions again... 更多
We had been to this place as we heard about it from some westerners! Amazing enough, we followed their advice to sight-see around our own country and found this splendid place. Beautiful artefacts not only from Mysore but all over Karnataka. Remember that in earlier days, the whole of South India was either Mysore or Madras! Lovely place to spend... 更多

The most annoying part is the staff, "no mobiles" was barked at us repeatedly...we... 更多
We spent an hour driving around Mysore to find the museum. The GPS location on the Google Maps is wrong, also that on TripAdvisor. Security staff at the camous have no idea where it is. No roadsigns indicate where it is. A real disappointment not being able to find it.
The credit of establishing ‘Folklore Museum’ in Mysore University goes to three great scholars namelyP.R.Thippeswamy, Javeregowda and Jeesham Paramashivaiah, who were the students of the poet laureate, Kuvempu. This museum is found in Manasagangotri campus. ‘Manasa’ refers to mind and Manasa sarovar in Mount Everest where Ganga River has taken birth. ‘Gangotri’ means purity (Ganges) of the mind.
