The Museum has good collection of old guns, pictures, swords and knives and many more things used by jhansi's queen. I liked the statues of gods and goddesses and the way the museum has arranged the articles. Interesting place for history students and history lovers. Visit this place which makes us proud to learn about our great queen Jhanxi Rani.

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.

The museum is 3 storey. The ground floor is dedicated to Queen of Jhansi. They have a sound and light show on the ground floor. It is in a open area and the noise from the surroundings dull the voice from the speaker. The attendent was courteous enough to start the show immediately when we requested him (though the scheduled... More

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
