Rabindra Bharati Museum was established in the two hundred and seventeen year old building “Jorasanko Thakurbari” on 8th May by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Prime Minister of India. This museum can be considered as the storehouse of memoirs of Rabindranath Tagore consisting of his original paintings, photographs and other valuable documents which our country is proud of.
