Lok Sanskriti Sangrahalaya was established in 1983 at Bhimtal (Nainital) by world renowned archeologist, artist, scholar and philosopher Padmshree Dr. Yashodhar Mathpal. The Sangrahalaya (Museum) has been fortunate enough in getting support of the local folk painters, artists, artisans and other people who helped in collection of folk cultural material. The museum was established with the main aim of preservation of local culture, documentation of oral and written traditions and provision of imparting training on vanishing arts and crafts of the region.
The Museum & Art Gallery is located three kilometre towards north from Bhimtal town in District Nainital (Uttarakhand), 320 kms from National capital New Delhi and State capital Dehradun, 24 kms from the railway station of Kathgodam, 59 kms from Pantnagar airport and 18 kms from Nainital-the district headquarter.
The museum has a campus of some five acres, on the east facing some gentle hill slope. It is enriched with varied flora of trees, shrubs, medicinal plant and flowers. The Bhimtal Lake, the biggest among Kumaon Lake is visible from the campus.
