The Heritage – History Museum of the College.

The   Heritage, Museum of the department of History, BhairabGanguly College was   set up (2014)     primarily with   the aim of   making   history as a subject livelier and engaging   among the students of our college.   Our broader   objective   was   to acquaint our students with the rich cultural heritage and   civilizations of our country and   thereby widen their mental horizon.  In fact, ‘The Heritage’ has become a part and parcel of the teaching and learning processes of the students of the college having history either as their honours subject or combination in their general courses.  In this process, the   knowledge   they   acquire   would help them in their higher studies and research activities.

Museums help to preserve   and promote cultural heritage. Generally, history museums are housed with the objects of historical and cultural importance – artifacts, sculptures and other remnants of ancient past of   different regions.  Our museum, The Heritage, is mainly housed with some of the replicas of inscriptions, coins, deities and artifacts   excavated in different regions of our Country and modern Bangladesh. It has in its possession   also some of the paintings, mainly of Mughal period.    Regional paintings   like Kangra paintings and    paintings of Bengal school of twentieth century   have also found place in the small gallery of our museum.   Bengal   is   a treasure-house of ancient   culture like chalcholithic and microlithic culture.     Some of the   ancient   archaeological sites of this part of the country are   Birbhanpur and PandurajarDhibi, both are in the     district of Birbhum, Paharpur in Rajshahi district of modern Bangladesh.  Jaggibanpur in the district of Malda is famous for its terracotta plaque. Our museum has in its collection some of the terracottas of Jaggibanpur.

 We   owe   a lot for our collection to the authorities of Indian Museum, Kolkata and State Archaeological Museum, Behala, Kolkata.  It is   mainly   due to their kind cooperation we succeeded to equip   our museum to a large extent.    In fact, it has been one of their policies   to    make replicas and sale   them    for promotion of awareness about the importance of preserving ancient artifacts.  Local people of Belghoria too came forward   in our endeavour to preserve and promote our cultural heritage. Some of them donated generously from their precious private collections.  This is how, history museum of our college built up. Since its inception, The Heritage has been   become a destination to be must visited by the common heritage lover, students, teachers and other dignitaries.  Our endeavour of building up a museum of its own was highly appreciated by the NAAC team visited our college in 2016.
