It isproposed to expand it into eight galleries by adding Picture Gallery, Agriculture, Forestry and Natural History.
The Exhibits:The only rarities to be found amid the lame array of temple sculpture, hero stones and dowdy colonial era artifacts (also spelt as artefacts) are a couple of beautiful Jain bronzes rescued by customs and excise officials from smugglers and, on the ground floor, photos of the prehistoric rock carvings at Usgalimal.
