The Museum of Sanghol is an Archaeological on-site Museum which means that its Importance is as much for research and pedagogical purposes as like an infotainment institute.

(Basics Apart from Infotainment)

•It is the responsibility of the museum specialist to make its display expressive  so that the spectator must feel pleased. Audiovisual and computer  interactive can be provided in various galleries to enhance the learning  experience of the visitors. It would also make the aura of the museum/gallery  more welcoming for the visitors. Ideally, at the entrance of each section, a  brief history of writing is essential. •Labels­ Individual labels for each exhibit should be developed in three  languages­ Hindi, English and Gurmukhi. •Signages – Boards showing direction and name of the galleries and offices  is a basic requirement of any museum and at present it is not fully met with.  Better quality signages need to be installed. •Drinking water –Provision of filtered cool drinking water is a basic visitor  facility required.

•Leaflets and folders serve good purpose. They are mostly informative in  character. Illustrated by reproductions of a few well selected specimens as they  mostly are, they convey to the visitor an impression of not only the exhibits of a  museum but also of the amenities provided by the museum for the public. Such  folders and leaflets should have a visual appeal in them. •  Map guides are more graphic and contain detailed information about the  museum and the approaches to its sections. •The museum needs provision of telephone system, fire alarms and  burglar alarms. •    •Seats for visitors must also be provided inside and outside the galleries. • Rest rooms for both gents and ladies with attached toilets are also  desirable in museums. Lockers for attendants and a checkroom near  the entrance for the public.  •Washrooms •Cafeteria/ Canteen
