Definitely worth a visit, though not too well maintained. It has excellent pieces from nearby regions which are absolutely stunning. Photography is not allowed.

It was a neat display but very few artifacts and very little explanation about the history & culture of the time of display. Architect was described repeatedly in similar language on many displays... Could have been made more interesting & interactive..

The Archaeological Museum at Khajuraho was a dampener in every respect. It is merely a storage place for dislodged statues from the beautiful temples. Nothing special or unique. Moreover the specimens are too few. I had to keep my camera in the locker as photography is not allowed. Though Khajuraho has a steady flow of tourists, you will hardly find... More

I was expecting more from this small museum and was disappointed that we could not take photos. The artefacts paled by comparison to seeing the sculptures in their natural environment.

We visited during the afternoon when it was to hot to walk around the temples. The admission is free with your ticket stub from the western group of temples. No photography allowed inside. Some really nice pieces here.

See the Chandela Temples. Skip this museum, where stuff consists of quite a few statues, but mainly broken temple parts, essentially rejects from the Chandela Temples...

One of the best Dancing Ganesha statues I have ever seen. I just felt like setting up a chair in front of it and settling down with some samosas, kachoris, and tea to just stare at it :-) Sadly, ASI does not allow photography in its museums.

Quick snapshot of the historic sculptures kept at a small place. It can be finished in 30-45 minutes but gives a good view of some of the rare statues.
