The concept of history Museum was initiated by Dr.S.Krishnaswamy, M.A., Ph.D., (Chicago), former Principal and Head of the Department. During 8th plan period, the Department received Rs.1,00,000 from UGC towards the construction of a History Museum. It was inaugurated by Dr. K.V. Raman, Professor and Head, Department of Ancient History and Archaeology, University of Madras on April 24, 1981. The museum has separate sections on numismatics, models of ancient and medieval replicas, burial urns, palm-leaf records, epigraphs from various temples, excavated potteries and objects reflecting tribal life. The Museum grew to the present state by generous support of the former Principal and the Director of Sri Vasavi Institutions, Prof. V. Sivakumar.
Department of Zoology of Sri Vasavi College, Erode maintain a museum in which animal collections includinganimals in fixing fluids, dried or specially prepared animals, stuffed animals, skeletons, bones and shells are assembled. The zoological museum contains specimen with their taxonomic description. The scientific collections are systematically arranged. The collections are mounted in glass cases (large items are sometimes displayed openly). Microscopically small items generally are not displayed; they are replaced by microphotographs, sketches, or enlarged models. Labels and explanatory texts contain information on the taxonomic status of the animal. Temporary thematic exhibits are often organized in zoological museum especially for government school students. Microscopic specimens are examined by means of regular and binocular magnifying glasses and microscopes. There are several specimens of numerous items for group laboratory studies. These specimen are also useful in the practical classes of both under graduate and post graduate students. These specimens are very useful to understanding of the subject like diversity of invertebrates, diversity of chordates, comparative anatomy, structural organization and functions, evolution and zoogeography. The museum contains more than 160 species as specimen. The distinctive feature of the museum is the wide collection of coral reefs.
