Vishwam Museum, situated in Mysore in Avadhoota Datta Peetham, an ashram of Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda, houses an eclectic collection of objects. This is primarily because these objects have been donated to the ashram by the devotees of Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda. Objects on display include musical instruments, minerals, gemstones, crystals, carpets, paintings, and etchings to name a few.The museum has quite an exhaustive collection of stamps dating back to 1835. Some stamps have been cast in gold and displayed here. The impressive stamp collection probably goes back to the time of Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda who worked in the post office in Metagalli, Mysore.
