I was a little disappointed with this place, especially in comparison with the amount of effort and expense which has gone into the preservation of the temples around Khajuraho. THe museum has a small collection of statues, interesting enough. I was able to visit using my entrance ticket to the Western temples from the previous day.

The Archaeological Museum is free with your temple ticket; so as many suggest...don't lose your ticket, hang onto it. Inside the museum you will find an ample amount of statues and relics from the Khajuraho Temples that are no longer standing.

Definitely visit this little museum for another view of the art and sculptures of Khajuraho's temples. Seeing the sculputures in a museum enables you to walk all around and see many angles--- which is different from seeing similar images in the temples. We spent about an hour at this museum-- and time well spent. I esp enjoyed the dancing Ganesha... More

The museum is just a short walk from the western temple group, it houses an attractive collection in just a few small rooms and took about 20 minutes to see. Entrance fee is included in the temple admission charge so save your ticket.

It has various Buddhist and Jain sculptures. There is a statue of Buddha and dancing Ganesha. This remains open from 10 am to 5 pm and is closed on Fridays.... More

small but interessing museum. Visit first the temples and you can complete your visit with the museum where you can easily see the statues close to you. I just deplore a lack of explanations on the history and the temples. .
