Army Service Corps. Museum Bareilly – For Complete Knowhow of the Battles
Now this one interested my kids a lot. Museums in other states are known to be about ancient relics and boring paintings and largely things that you are told is old and important but you do not see the fun in it. The Army Service Corps. Museum Bareilly is the sole museum that recreates the magic and scenes of battlefields using various props, models and display items. What makes it super exciting is that they use real weapons to give you this description. It is like a multimedia presentation and this presentation however does not take place in any computer screen but instead it is on display. Along with it you also have the data in the form of manuscripts and documents which support the happenings of the battle.
Rahul, Shilpa, Aparajita were all mesmerized and we moved from each exhibit to the other trying to understand the battles, when they were fought, how they were fought and between whom. The history of these fights was written nearby and visitors could educate themselves about it. There were innumerable people around who were visiting the place. In fact, there seemed to be a bunch of school children who were out on an excursion to this museum and they were moving all around with rapt attentive glances while looking at all the exhibits. My children were no less. For an hour or so, we were all hardly together as all of us parted to separate places independently exploring the place on our own. There were guns and swords and other military decorations along with support with manuscripts and documents which gave credence to the entire exhibit. All this gave a good and detailed history of the military undertakings of our country.
The entire evening was passing without any effort and after we finished looking at all the exhibits, we were done. But as we rode back to the hotel, the kids spoke endlessly about it in the car. The enthusiasm of the kids was palpable and truly infectious after the visit to Army Service Corps. Museum Bareilly. We wrap the trip the next day with MJP Rohilkhand University Bareilly.
