Located near the Handri river in Budavarapupeta, the District Archaeological Museum, Kurnool was set up by the Department of Archaeology and Museums in 1999. The stone sculptures, displayed on cement pedestals and retrieved from Srisailam, can be dated back to the Chalukyan period and the Vijayanagara periods. Other artefacts include arms and weapons, paintings, inscriptions, pottery and architectural pieces like door jambs and lintels. A museum shop is also located on the premises.
