Museum has a very rich collection of sculptures. These sculptures not only serve the religious purpose of the people of that period but also reflect their spirit, tradition and creative impulse The sculpture up to the 5th-6th century are not many in Himachal but the period thereafter is well-represented. These sculptures are characterized by smooth plasticity, serene countenance and suave linear rhythm.
