The museum is a major repository of Tagores' works, especially those of Abanindranath and Rabindranath. It offers details about the history of the Tagore family, including its involvement with the Bengal Renaissance and the Brahmo Samaj. Song, dance, prayer and remembrance, all will come together on May 9,to start a year-long celebration of 150 years of Rabindranath.
