Aims and Objectives

There are about six universities in India which have Museology Departments. These universities do not have independent Art Conservation Department as such, Some universities offer History of Art without any emphasis on the global art.

Besides, most of these universities are without any museum and the required infrastructural facilities such as laboratory, slide library, documentation centre etc. This somehow resulted in inadequate-practical training, leaning more on theories.

All these objectives, as envisaged, could be achieved only when an unique Museum University having infrastructural facilities like a formidable conservation laboratory, a multi-disciplinary collection of art-objects, library of art-books and slides, work-shop, photography department, educational unit etc. are at hand. And that is where the National Museum Institute fulfills the whole objectives of a Museum University -the first of its kind in Asia.
