Located a short distance from the entrance to the Ratnagiri Buddhist Archaeological Site (but not accessible from inside the site), the ASI museum was opened in 1998 and displays 238 antiquities from their vast collection of 3,485 artifacts.
The museum is divided across four galleries and is well worth visiting either before or after your visit to the site. The entrance fee is also staggering cheap, just Rs 5/- regardless of your nationality, and it is free for anyone under 15 years of age.
What follows are a few examples of the artifacts that can be seen at the museum, click on any image to view it larger.
