 MYMENSINGH: The rare and unique items in Mymensingh Museum are lying uncared for without any step to properly maintain and take care of them.

In a bid to preserve the rare and unique relics of local architecture, paintings, sculptures, metal works and utensils of the district, the museum was set up in 1969.

Former deputy commissioner Mokammel Hossain set it up in the garden house of Zamindar Madan Babu at 17, Amritababu Road of the district town.

The museum was initially in charge of Mymensingh Municipality and the government took it over in August 1989. It was enlisted in the gazette in April 1995.

However, no step has yet been taken to develop the museum, leading many items to perish gradually, sources said.

Sources said there are no catalogues of the rare and unique items and those are lying there without any identification mark.

In addition, some items have been kept in open places as the number of showcases is insufficient and so they are decaying faster, they said.

Spiders were also making their webs in some items of the museum, they added.

The museum does not get so many visitors every day as it should. Sources said it might attract many visitors, if there was much publicity, including through big signboards, sources said.

A Bangladeshi needs to pay Tk 2 for visiting the museum while a foreigner Tk 50. The museum gets 30 visitors every day, on an average.

When asked, M Saiful Islam, assistant Custodian of the museum, told daily sun that the items would be properly taken care of and maintained after the museum is shifted to Shashi Lodge which was used as a teachers training centre five years ago.

He said the authorities had already taken steps to shift the museum.
