The Visakha Museum in Visakhapatnam is near to the Beach Road and so I thought of visiting the place as I was pretty excited about it. The museum has some of the historical treasures and facts of the Kalingandhra region. There are various ancient items and paintings such as the armory, coins, different costumes, crockery, animal bones and skulls, jewelry, paintings, manuscripts, scrap books, maps, letters, periodicals, portraits, and many more, which are preserved in the museum Those items and things were used by the early residents of the area and later on they were preserved by the archeological departments. There are various pictures of warships, submarines and large cruises. Some of the historical items of the country are also preserved in the museum, which was quite exciting.
Many of the items and preserved things were special and they attracted me a lot. Such things included the light reflectors and Vasco Da Gama’s route map, which brought him to the country. All the things, which were on display, were really special and quite unique. This museum tells a lot about the ancient period and one can learn a lot about our existence and past culture. It was really a unique and quite amazing experience because I could spend some memorable time and learn a great deal about the place. According to the reports, the museum is 150 years old and the building was earlier a Dutch bungalow before being converted into a museum. Many shells and bombs, which were unexploded during the World War II, were also on display.
Near to the Visakha Museum Visakhapatnam, there is the famous Submarine Museum, which was earlier a submarine and later on converted to a museum. The name was INS Kurusura as it was basically from Russia. It had been under the responsibility of the Indian defense since 1970 and later in the year 2001, it was opened for tourists. It displays some stuffs from the marine and defense departments of India. The museum is the first of its kind in the country and second in the world. This is the reason for the presence of a large number of tourists throughout the year. This is designed in such a way that it can help the visitors aware about the work carried out by the submarines. The museum is open from 9 am to 9 pm.
