Palanpur brims with a historically illustrious heritage. In 2009, it got its own museum to reveal its facts and tales with Smt. Meenaben and Shri Ashwinbhai Panalal Kothari’s donation. Smt. Shushilaben Parikh was Smt. Meenaben Kothari’s mother and the younger sister of Shri Kanubhai Mehta, who is one of the pioneers of Vidyamandir.
The museum unfolds in two wings, and each one has a story to tell. One travels back in time after being surrounded by the unique display of the yesteryears of Palanpur, its geography, folklore, architecture, antiquities, relics, and culture. All of this can be explored in the first wing of the building, whereas the other one has a film projection room full of documentaries on Palanpur with an adjoining art gallery to promote local artwork.
