Imphal Peace Museum is a Chronicle of the Heroism of the ordinary Manipuris dedicated to the indomitable human spirit which was so abundantly evident in the manner Manipur embraced as inevitable what can only be described as an epochal catastrophe, and in the end, emerged triumphantly.

This is a 6500 sq ft gallery where WWII archaeological finds are allotted appropriate contextual spaces in the narrative of a cataclysmic historical trajectory Manipur found itself in because of a peculiar turn of the geopolitics of the period. These artefacts from the past are reconnected to the activities which once gave them meaning, by materially and symbolically remaking the world they came from.

The first shows the intensity of the “war”. The second shows the “post-war” and the third shows the “life & culture”, together with show the resilience of these hills and valleys, and the people who made these their homes.
