West Bengal is probably the first place where there is the museum of boats. It is located in Ultadanga Region of Kolkata. If you visit there then you can see the history of boats in the world.

With the passage of time, many of the indigenous boats have vanished. The Heritage Boats of Bengal is a humble venture of the Department of Backward Classes, West Bengal, which lead to the foundation of the Boat Museum.

The Boat Museum contains 46 scale models of boats and ships dating back to the days of Indus Valley Civilization and covering areas from Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Bangladesh.

A noteworthy aspect of the Boat Museum in Kolkata is Harappan Boat Amulet.
