KHOJ is one of the first dynamic group of museums in India focussing on connecting science, art, and innovation by means of participatory displays, inquiry-based activities, and inquisitiveness-based explorations. Unlike a regular museum having play cards of “Please Do Not Touch”, at KHOJ, visitors are encouraged to interact, participate, play, and explore different exhibits and concepts. The main philosophy of the museum is to have fun and build inquisitiveness while exploring the exhibitions, in the process they will learn and understand different concepts in-depth and further build their own small movements to promote the concept of innovation. KHOJ Museum was built with a mandate of supporting the young ones in questioning everything which they see, defusing the boundaries between the subjects and focussing on the theme and further connecting it with daily lives. Art and creativity remain at the core of the museum and acts as a bridge between science, innovation, and daily lives. Khoj museum has been established at three locations: Naranpura, Ahmedabad; Riverfront, Ahmedabad and Citylight Rd, Surat. It is also working on expanding its outreach among students and communities through its KHOJ Social and KHOJ clubs initiatives.
Nature is an integral part of our daily lives which doesn’t gain much attention. Environmentalists all over the world believe that sustainability of nature is the key to the existence of humanity. Come to Khoj Naranpura to explore the three elements affecting a sustainable life: climate change, plastic usage and our earth (the soil).
Water, Bubbles and Animation. These three things can never fail to make you smile. Everyone has at least once played with water and bubbles. There is no one who hasn’t watched cartoons as their favourite pastime in their childhood. Bring out your inner child and have fun with science here at Khoj Riverfront.
Since globalisation and advancement in technology, life has become fast paced. However, just one virus caused the whole world to shut down. What is a virus? How is it so powerful? Where does it all exist? What can be done to protect ourselves from it? How can some useful virus protect us as well? Visit Khoj Surat to get answers to all your questions.Also explore the world of sustainable development.
KHOJ is the only children’s museum in India, first of its kind and aims at creating a scientific temper among children and adults alike. Our exhibitions feature simple everyday phenomena happening around us and exploring it. Like the science behind a soap bubble, or a drop of blood and its composition or reasons behind changing seasons. We take a lot of what we see and hear for granted; at Khoj you can now find out more about what you thought was simple!
Unlike most museums that are static, Khoj is a dynamic museum. We don’t have the same exhibitions but every floor transforms itself 12 months into something entirely new. If you come now, you would see cameras and virtual reality as we celebrate moving images this month. But if you come back in summer, you would probably see textiles, fabrics and dyes as we do a history of the cloth or any other topic for that matter. Prepare to be surprised!
We spur innovation with our many hands-on activities inside the museum’s four floors. We have a number of experiments that you can do within the premises to understand and learn more about how you connect the dots and how innovative you can be. For a fresh batch of ideas, visit the museum and let your creativity be unleashed!
A very relevant aspect of the museum is in its design itself. With an army of maverick architects, designers, artists and builders, we set out to create a space that speaks to every individual. From the way its walls are painted to the gardens and the dome, we have tried to create something that is constantly challenging us and doesn’t remain permanent. We hope it challenges you too!
Congratulations! Inaugural session of Khoj Museum Riverfront was a fantastic experience. The team headed by Kothari had done wonderful job in creating the museum in a short span of time. I am very confident that the museum would definitely instill seeds of scientific knowledge in our school students and younger generation. I wish all the success to the team.
Khoj Museum has well designed Science activity areas for kids. They have some of the best models and activities explaining Science to kids I have seen in India. I am an STEAM Educator, and I highly recommend to take kids to Khoj for experiencing the concepts they have been reading in Science text books till now.
We from SAC, along with 28 young scientist students visited both the campuses of Khoj. It was an excellent experience. All students enjoyed a lot and learnt new things. A refreshment setup was made as per our request to view some spots at a short notice. We are thankful to the staff and Kathan Bhai for nice arrangements.
