The collection here is just splendid, and one day certainly isn't enough for this place. From sculptures to war relics to clocks and bidri work, this is a museum binding history, beauty and the passion for collecting such priceless things. The jade room, the miniature paintings, veiled Rebecca are some of the highlights.

Art galleries in museum are amazing. There are weapons, clothes, furniture, variety of silk weaving and different art forms belonging to many past emperors. Sculptures gallery has the famous statue of Veiled Rebecca - Must Watch, it's amazing. Double-figure wood sculpture is equally amazing.

Nice works of ARTS were on Display. For an Art lover , one should not Miss this. A star attraction of 12 noon Clock -- was certainly not as interesting as the works in Ivory etc.
