The Museum of Evolution of Life, as the name suggests, traces back the origin of a man from Indus Valley Civilisation to the present age. Set up in 1973 as a part of the Government Museum and Art Gallery, this exquisite museum houses portraits and paintings that explain the evolution of humans from unicellular organisms to biological diversity. The first phase of the museum was the section of Cyclorama that was followed by Astronomy, Archaeology, Pre-historic and Geology sections.

There is also a reference library inside the museum that holds an outstanding collection of books on subjects like evolutionary studies, palaeontology, zoology, botany and biology. The museum is open from 10 am to 4:30 pm throughout the week except on Mondays.
