  • We spent around about an hour here. Something good to do on a day you don't have much on. Was only 200 rupees to enter. Educational and informative information provided throughout the museum. If you are staying by the lakeside you can get a city bus to and from for only 30 rupees.
  • A best place to know and learn the history of Gorkha. It has lots of pictures of Gorkha ex-servicemen. It shows lot of used artifacts belonging of Gorkha, which they has used in World war 2. It also tells about Sam Bahadur. If you are in Pokhra you must come here. Ticket is only 50 rupee.
