History of Museum :
An old bungalow standing almost dilapidated on the beach road at Waltair, in  Visakhapatnam, is known to the locals as "Dutch Bungalow".  This building was in occupation by various families till the late 70s, but no one ever dreamt that it would one day become the home of "Visakha Museum".The bungalow and the land around it was alienated to VUDA for development in the 1980s. Originally it was thought that the Bungalow would make way for a five-star hotel. Founding members of the Visakha Historical Society and other public-spirited citizens rallied around and appealed to the authorities to preserve the building and utilise it for a public purpose.  Good sense prevailed and it was decided to renovate and preserve the Bungalow for public use.
