Government Museum Vellore is situated within the premises of the historical vellore fort. This museum was established in the year 1985 as the 6th district Museum to impart knowledge about erstwhile North Arcot District (Present Vellore & Thiruvannamalai) and its Significance. Both the Districts have rich flora and fauna and cultural heritage. In early days Vellore district was ruled by Pallava,chola,sambuvarayas, and vijayanagaras. During the reigns of sambuvarays and vijayanagaras vellore district played vital rule in the history of Tamilnadu. Vellore served as capital city during the last phase of the vijayanagra empire. Later European settlers like English and French had rivalry for Capturing the power.In this juncture, Nawabs of Arcot supported either French or English. Vellore Fort was under the control and witness series attacks, alternately,by the forces of English and French.
