Embrace. Enjoy. Discover. Grow
Welcome to the Orientation Room
The orientation exhibits are designed to engage children by transporting them to natural environments and making them curious to learn. A storybook-style illustrated map of India with important places and major transportation routes greets the children at the Orientation Room. A large sculpture of the sparrow and related exhibits illustrate to young children why the state bird, the sparrow, is endangered. Images are brought to life through flat screen monitors and lenticular printed graphics. Animated animals and historical figures pop out inviting children to discover more about them. Special events of the day can be seen in “What’s On Today”, projected on screens fitted within birdhouses on a stylized tree of Sikki grass.
The wonderful world of the Children’s Gallery
The Children’s Gallery brings the history of Bihar and natural history alive for children. The gallery is specially designed to ignite the curiosity of young children. Education is combined with entertainment and enjoyable activities. There are six experiential learning zones – the Orientation Room, Wildlife Sanctuary, history sections on Chandragupta Maurya and Sher Shah Suri, the Arts and Culture section and the Discovery Room. Exhibits illustrate concepts through dramatic recreation and storytelling techniques. Various tools and visual aids encourage hands-on learning and explorations.
