The ancestral home of the Tagores has been converted to Rabindra Bharati University Museum. The house at Jorasanko had been better known as 'Thakurbari.' It was where Rabindranath Tagore was born, spent a substantial part of his life and breathed his last.
Formed in 1961, this museum's objective is to perpetuate the memory of the nobel laureate as well as that of the other distinguished members of the Tagore family. It also aims at preserving the cultural history of the nineteenth and early twentieth century Bengal.
The entry is free. The museum is open on all weekdays from 10:00 to 17:00 hrs and Saturdays between 10:00 and 13:30 hrs.
