  • The Bharat Ratna Gopinath Bordoloi Memorial Museum, Raha is a personalia Museum established in the Raha State Dispensary premises in memory of Bharat Ratna Gopinath Bordoloi in 1998 and inaugurated by then Governor Late S.K. Sinha on 6th June, 1998. There are three units of Assam Type houses in the premises. Of these two units are used as Museum for display of valuable personal belongings of Bharat Ratna Gopinath Bordoloi.

    It was the birth place of Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi who was born in 6th June 1890, while his father Late Dr. Gopeswar Bordoloi was posted at Raha as State Dispensary Doctor. The Assam type houses were constructed in 1882. As per photographic evidence the original Assam type house had thatched roof. The wall of the house was made with battened jungle reed with mud plaster and lime painting. The house was renovated first in the year 1998 and now in 2017. The museum houses 51 personal objects and a part of it has been now brought to the Laboratory at the Assam State Museum for conservation works.

    The Museum was re-opened after renovation to the general public on 6th June, 2017 by the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Assam, Sri Sarbananda Sonowal.
