Malda Museum is an archaeological museum under the West Bengal Directorate of Archaeology, situated on the Bandh Road of Malda Town.

The museum took off initially as a collection of historic artifacts found within the district within the premises of the District Library. It was then shifted to a new adjacent building of its own and granted the status of a museum in its own right under the State Directorate of Archaeology.

Though Malda Town itself came up only in the times of British colonial rule, the region had been the seat of power of Bengal since the 7th century. till the late 16th century when the nearby Gour and Pandua served as the capital cities of the entire Bengal region. The museum, renovated and revamped recently, showcases the archaeological, anthropological, and historical heritage of the region. The museum has a number of fine specimens of sculptures, figurines, calligraphic inscription tablets, terracotta plaques and other artifacts that represent more than 1500 years of history and heritage.
