Seeking to attract more people, the Regional Museum of Natural History (RMNH), Mysore, a regional centre of the National Museum of Natural History (Ministry of Environment & Forests, Government of India) recently created a Facebook page.

“Recently, the Centre granted permission to government organisations to create a Facebook page in order to promote the organisation,” said John Thomas of the RMNH. The page, created around two months ago, provides information about the museum, contact information and also photographs of recent events and exhibitions that took place on its premises. There is also a link to the RMNH website.

Established in 1995

Established in 1995 as the first regional centre of the National Museum of Natural History, the Mysore centre, adjacent to Karanji Nature Park, exhibits models of various kinds of eco-systems complete with flora and fauna. The RMNH depicts the geological and environmental diversity of south India highlighting the inter-relationship among different species of plants and animals living on the planet.
