About the location: This museum was set up in 1981 as a catalogue of utensils used across the country with exhibits from the personal collection of the founder of the Vishalla restaurant. A long U-shaped path runs along a rustic but tastefully decorated hall that is lined with urns, jugs, spittoons, pots and locks.
Brief History: The museum was started on 27 April 1981 and was the brainchild of designer Surendra Patel and the anthropologist Jyotindra Jain. This is the only museum in the world that has such a rich repository of daily use utensils from different eras. It was aimed at bringing the gaze towards the inventive and fascinating utensils used in rural and urban homes of India. The museum was created to let travellers take a peek into the rich heritage through vessels. This has led to the preservation of an integral part of Indian cooking, including fire kilns.
