The role of the museum may differ for anyone, but what it takes to preserve the cultural heritage of the nation, state or district is something that makes it a devoted space of historic importance. With the efforts of Archaeological Survey of India, in the pre- and post-colonial era, excavations have been successful and a huge amount of tangible collection has been procured from the Indus Valley Civilization such as utensils, toys, seals, jewellery, weapons, tools, and more. Harappan civilization was just about this but did showcase the architectural marvels, city planning and sewage systems. This article emphasizes on the importance of museums in providing the generations to come with the ample amount of information to inculcate and communicate with the past human mankind had. Not only this, but how communication strategies can be improved to create a visual for the visitors to connect better with the intangible part of the collection.
