Crown jewel of Agartala. A must visit since this houses the state museum. Possibly one of the better maintained museums in the country. The palace complex is very well maintained and a delight for all visitors. The displays are well appointed and good amount of information is displayed. Overall a must visit.

Unlike most other state museums, this palace and the museum are well maintained, well explained and well curated. Entry fee is very low and everything is kept clean, including the bathrooms. The museum is Guwahati has a lot better collection but it is very poorly maintained. We had a good time here and spent about 2 hours happily.
