These are paintings, sculptures, manuscripts, remains of Ram Janm Bhoomi, stone images of Visnu and Ganesa (10 th and 19 th Century AD) from India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and other parts of the world. Museum collects, harbours, display and conserves these antiquities.

It is involved in display of object and development of new galleries, to include different aspects of international Ram Leela and inculcate it into traditional form for display. To organize lectures, seminars, film shows for students and general visitors and also organize different competitions along with other educational programmes.
