Interesting Sculptures on display

Pretty good collection of Sculptures, mostly from the 10th and 11th Centure AD era. Located right in the middle of Khajuraho and easily accessible

As with most "site" museums in India, the collections are assembled from the leftover rubble but aesthetically challenged archaeologists. The GREAT specimens are mostly in state and federal museums, or reattached to the monuments. Exceptions to this rule are the site museums of Sarnath ( World Heritage site near Benares), and Bodhgaya ( Wold Heritage site, Buddhist pilgrimage site in... More

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...

The museum has a collections of statues which were part of the khajuraho temple at a point.but after seeing the temples you don t really appreciate this place.the ticket which you get at the western group temples entry is used to enter here as well so do not throw the ticket stubs away
