Hasta Shilpa Heritage House & Children’s Museum is located at Anant Nagar, 2nd Stage, Manipal, only a couple of kilometres away from the Heritage Village. It is the ‘newest old’ project of Hasta Shilpa Trust, and was the original home of our founder, Vijayanath Shenoy, built by him in the late 1980s. It was his first attempt at setting up an ethnographic museum within his own ‘traditional’ home.

Designed as a courtyard house or chowki mane, this house displayed his eclectic collection of household artefacts such as cooking and storage vessels, tools and implements used in olden times. Built with salvaged material from other derelict structures, this beautiful house is replete with carved wooden pillars and panels. Vijayanath Shenoy lived there with his young family for several years but the publicity surrounding his home led to a great loss of privacy and eventually forced him to leave it and set up home elsewhere in Manipal. However, it is considered by the Trust to be its flagship project and is the genesis of Vijayanath Shenoy’s early ideas on restoration and conservation work.

The house was shut down for more than one and a half decades until Hasta Shilpa Trust decided to restore it with the financial support of Dorabji Tata Trusts & Allied Trusts, Mumbai, in 2016. The Hasta Shilpa Trust also decided to house its collection of toys and playthings in this historic heritage house. Inaugurated on Children’s Day, November 14, 2017, hundreds of school children upto standard 7 have visited it on excursion tours. It is open every year from November through February (Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays only from 1030 am to 1230 pm and 2pm to 430pm), exclusively for school tours on advance booking for a nominal cost. Plans are afoot to animate the Heritage House space in other ways for the rest of the year.
