Start Your Own Museum -

Sarmaya is an online museum with thousands of objects in its collection—but it began in a very humble way, when his father gifted a 12-year-old Paul Abraham with a Vaseline bottle full of antique coins! As Paul will tell you, collecting rare, precious and interesting objects of art and history is the grand adventure of a lifetime. It opens up whole worlds inside your mind and teaches you more than any textbook can about the phenomenal history of the Indian subcontinent. Would you too like to be a collector like Paul? If you already have a budding collection, would you like to curate an exhibition to share your treasures with the world? Download this activity sheet and we will get you started.
