Speaking to media, G Vani Mohan, Commissioner, Department of Archaeology and Museums, Andhra Pradesh said, "Museum has 1500 artifacts relating to 10 lakh years ago to 19th century. We've used augmented and virtual reality technologies here." Informing about the history of the museum, Mohan said that the Victoria Memorial Building where the museum is situated was constructed in 1887. "It was taken over by the government of Andhra Pradesh in 1962. The state government established an archaeological museum named 'Victoria Jubilee Museum'. This is the place where Pingali Venkayya presented the tricolour to Mahatma Gandhi during the AICC meeting in 1921. The same flag is adopted as the national flag on July 22, 1947," she said. This historic place is now developed into ultra-modern 'Bapu Museum'.
