The Punjab Agriculture University Museum on the outskirts of Ludhiana, Punjab, displays artifacts from the various era of rural Punjab. The museum which was highly inspired by the open-air museum in Copenhagen is an excellent insight into traditional Punjab. It resembles the traditional houses in rural Punjab with long paths flanked by water channels on either side. The Museum is a hybrid of the agricultural and cultural portrayal of Punjab where on can visit the goat farm, cow farm, and horse farm. The models of miniature mountains, rivers and water reservoirs are the crowd pleasers.
The exhibit has a long path with water channels on both sides and a beautiful facade in its 4000 sq.ft of land. The 100-yard long path makes way to the etched wooden door of the museum with which holds the antique repertoire of the 18th century Punjab. This historic building houses a rare object made of six layers of camel skin. The culture of Punjab comes alive at the museum as it features traditional instruments like tumba, sarangi, vanjhili and nagara. It is a perfect setting to understand the socio-economic and religious life of the yesteryears.
