We spent an hour in the museum looking at all of the artefacts from various stages of Indian history from the ancient to the Raj.
I am not a history person, but the recent trend of mythological saga in Indian Television saw an upsurge of interest in history in youths like me.

From the outside it looks just like a dated building. Start exploring it and you'll be awed by the rich collection of paintings depicting various cultures right from Roman, Greek, Turk, Egypt, Ramayan, Mahabharat and many other Mythology stories. The amazing collection of ancient coins and painted cards add to the treasure house. On finishing the tour of Albert Hall... More
The building was costructed in 1887 using a blend of English and Indian architecture. The building itself is quite interesting and home to lots of pigeons in the courtyard areas. The building houses lots of artifacts from India as well as other places such as Egypt (including a mummy), It has many displays of tribal dress, sculptures, miniatures, paintings, carpets... More

I would have completely missed on this place had it not been too close to where I stayed. I was never even sure that the place was actually a museum until we went inside. The whole building looks like a big palace with pigeons making it home around it. The place is rich in display as well as its interiors.... More
To be honest nothing to write home about, probably a few more things then most museums we visited but in and out in 15 minutes pretty much covered. Certainly a lot more to see in some of the forts then any of the museums we visited.
We drove around this building many times during our excursions out. the building is surrounded by thousands of pigeons, which fly up and come down. the are has lots of activity going on. The building architecture is gorgeous, equal to any place in Europe. You will see the horse buggies here as well.
Very good place to visit in winter. It you are historical places lover then you will surely love this place. You should have a good camera to click pics of d place.
It has a nice collection of Indian paintings, coins and stone carvings. I liked the statues of Budhha, Vishnu and other characters from Hindu mythology. A large number of pigeons can be found outside the hall.
