I had been in Jhansi in FEB14, the weather was cool and due to this I could visit more places. The museum is good place to see but remember It closes at 4:00 PM, one has to be atleast at 2:00 am to completely see through the museum.

The Govt musuem holds historic artefacts on various topics, the first floor though is dedicated to the life and times of Rani Laxmibai. A light and sound show accompanying each of the images/photograph depicting the life of Rani Laxmibai is very informative and educative.

I went to the museum because prior to my visit the ratings on tripadvisor gave it 4.5 stars. I thought it was really dull. Unless you are very interested in history of Jhansi I wouldn't bother. We had a 7 hour train layover to Agra and gave this a go, but it's nothing special. At least it's only 25 rupees..

Jahnsi is a wonderful town which is not often visited by tourists. The Museum gives an account of an amazing Indian woman, Rani Laxmi Bai who ruled Jahnsi and held it against the British. Not only does this museum tell a wonderful story that very few people know, it has an incredible collection of marble sculputures and terra cottas. We... More
