One of the main focuses of the 25th Wiki Explores Programme was GLAM. Museums have always been covered right from the very beginning of this programme. But, during Wiki Explores Darjeeling, we documented ten museums from the Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts. The complete list of museums covered is as below -
Darjeeling Himalayan Railway Museum - Sukna
Darjeeling Himalayan Railway Museum - Ghum
Himalayan Tibet Museum - Darjeeling
Himalayan Mountaineering Institute - Darjeeling
Roy Villa - Darjeeling
Tibetan Refugee Self-Help Centre Museum - Darjeeling
Two of these museums, viz. Roy Villa, and Gouripur House, are still under renovation. They used to be the local residences of Sister Nivedita and Rabindranath Tagore. We have documented the current situation and the renovation process. These images and videos will help evaluate the restoration process once completed.
The uploading of the photographs and videos is going on now.
