    This is a decent general knowledge question that appeared in my state entrance exam. The correct answer is Tamil Nadu. To be precise, the first food museum in India is located at FCI, Thanjavur.

    The first food museum is founded in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu, Southern India. Some might ask why this was the only place chosen? Thanjavur offers significant historical importance that the Food Corporation of India can relate to.
