The quiet and tiny village of Andro, on the outskirts of Imphal, is a home of the tribal people who lives there. Out there you will find a very unique kind of museum which is Mutua Bahadur Museum. This museum is not like other museums. It was not constructed like a concrete building with various different sections. But it is a thatched hut and houses built in traditional style to maintain their uniqueness.

Tourists can find a fine selection of traditional artifacts, including pottery, coins, manuscripts, paintings, bell metal objects, jewelers, wood carving and a range of ethnic handicraft items. The different houses constructed by the various tribes of Manipur including poumai, kabui, meitei, kuki and tangkhul are also replicated at this museum. The 34 recognized tribes of the state find representation in the form of dolls at the Doll’s House. The wooden carvings and traditional paintings on display provide a deeper insight into the rich cultural heritage of Manipur as well as the myths and legends related to its people.

The Andro are keen to preserve their cultural legacy, and hence, established a cultural complex cum museum. The Mutua Museum unlike conventional museums comprises thatched huts that display locally made handicrafts. This Museum is a Cultural Complex located at Andro village, about 21 kilometers away from the capital.

Whenever you are planning to visit Imphal don’t forget to visit here and witness this amazing museum and their traditional styles of preservation.
