PATNA: Patna's Bihar Museum will soon be connected with the historic Patna museum through an underground 1.5 km long passage. The underway will be designed and built in a unique way by exhibiting the art and culture of the state, including Madhubani paintings.

Tickets for the passage would be available on either side of the tunnel. Visitors would be able to have glimpses of the artifacts and other things of antique value while inside the passage.
