Abstract: Museum is an institution devoted to the acquisition, conservation, study, exhibition, and educational interpretation of objects having scientific, historical, cultural or artistic value. A museum is typically a non-profit making, permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of study, education and enjoyment, the tangible and intangible evidence of people and their environment. Museums connect people to knowledge and information, creativity and inspiration. The paper describes diverse collection of Indian mythological figures in the Salar Jung Museum, especially the images of Vinayaka (Vigneswara or Ganesa), the Lord of Remover of Obstacles, in different media describing its artistic and thematic points of view.
