The museum has got a great collection of paintings, sculptures and pottery from the erstwhile rulers of Baroda. The collection includes Raja Ravi Verma, Felici, replicas of some of the great works of art from Italy such as David and some great Japanese pottery and definitely worth visiting. There is not much description other than the name below the paintings... More
