History museum

First of its kind In Up, the natural history museum will open its doors in March 2023 | Lucknow News

LUCKNOW: If you’re interested in birds or animals that existed millions of years ago or extinct or endangered species, the next Natural History Museum will be the place for you. Scheduled to open in March 2023 adjacent to the State Museum on the zoo campus, the museum will be the first of its kind in UP and will feature approximately 6,000 animal and bird specimens expertly collected over the past 200 years in different places around the world.
This collection remained in the state museum for a long time due to the lack of space in the museum’s natural history gallery.
It is only now that construction work on a separate museum for natural history has begun. It will be finished in 10 months. Although Rs 22 lakh was approved for the three-storey museum building and sanctioned in the 2019-2020 state budget, the project was delayed due to the pandemic.
The museum will have five galleries displaying specimens of mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds and aquatic animals in the form of mannequins. In addition, skins, eggs, fossils and skeletons will be on display.
Visitors will be able to learn about animals that are now extinct, endangered, rare, critically endangered or endangered as well as those commonly found.
The gallery will be digitized so that buttons attached to a screen in each section help visitors hear the sounds made by the animal and more about them in an audio-visual format. The highlight will be a life-size working model of a dinosaur made on the principle of robotics.
Alshaz Fatmi, Deputy Director of the State Museum and Head of the Natural History Gallery, said: “Our goal is to give everyone the opportunity to feel connected to the environment. The infusion of modern technology and audiovisual support will not only make the museum interactive, but also help visitors discover the exhibits.”
State Museum Director Anand Kumar Singh said: “There are several natural history museums in the country. The one in Lucknow will be the first in UP. Overall, there are four museums in the State: the Personalia Museum, the Archaeological Museum, the Folk Art Museum and the State Museum A tribal museum is also under construction.
