Parked right outside the museum are two toy train engines which the princes used to sit in and go from palace to schoolgrounds. Inside is an exhibit of the prince's personal collection of sculpture, crockery, art pieces and manuscripts. it is in need of good upkeep.. not wheelchair friendly.

For a ticket costing just under 500/- rupees, the visit to the palace museum is overrated. You get a "guided" tour using a pre-recorded voice over of the "attractions".
