  • Do not, do not, miss spending time here! Buy the audio tour in your native language, and use it as a guide through what would otherwise be an overwhelming amount of historical and artistic information...  more »

  • This is one amazing museum. Pro tip- purchase audio guide with ticket. It will cost 50 rupees per person, but totally worth it. With audio guide, you may need 4-5 hours to cover all rooms. It is recommended to start early in morning, so u don't have to rush through by the end. DO HIT A LIKE BUTTON IF THIS WAS HELPFUL
  • I went to this history museum with my cousin a month back. This museum is big, take u 3-4 hours minimum to see everything properly. It has 4 floors with all historical models of utensils/stone pieces/wooden items/idols/weapons of time millennia. Inside feels like a government building. Stuff must be more than 5000+. Photography allowed sparing 50 rs/person. Cafe available for eateries. Museum shop available for merchandise. I bought museum guide book. Gardens & Buddha stone head present. Entry ticket applied. Overall nice place to visit with anyone. One of biggest museum I saw in India so far. Rating- 5/5.
