It is a city museum depicting history, art, culture and architecture of Ahmedabad. The museum was designed in the Modernist style by the French architect Le Corbusier. It was named Museum of Knowledge during designing. It was originally a part of a large complex of Cultural Centre of Ahmedabad which had separate pavilions and areas for different subjects like anthropology, natural history, archaeology, monumental sculptures, workshops and depots, folklores in open air. It also included a pavilion for theatre called miracle box. But out of whole planned cultural centre, only the museum was built. Its foundation stone was laid on 9 April 1954|
