The Museums of India project by Sahapedia was launched in 2017 and is a web- based repository of museum information across the country. Besides listing information on 450+ museums in 85+ locations, Museums of India has curated and organized experiences for a variety of audiences – including children from marginalized backgrounds and people with disabilities.

Museums of India is designed to bring together museums, heritage, and communities to create a participatory eco-system of museum exploration, enrichment, and education. Museum Mapping, a part of Museums of India, is an exercise aimed at tracing and creating an all-inclusive resource of all the museums of India. The museum map is a dynamic digital platform where audiences can view consolidated information about museums, as well as interact with museum professionals. Given the fact that many museums in India struggle with visitor engagement and funding, the museum map is a space that provides visibility and facilitates interaction between museum professionals and the audience.
