“A must visited Meusium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

I like how they organise the sections. It's good that they have collections from almost all the states in India.
Well maintained place too...

“Mini Niagara Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Spectacular with flowing water of river Narmada creating mist in and around. Though the height of Falls is nowhere near to original Niagara Falls in US but people can enjoy its might and misty atmosphere. During monsoon water rises above the level of falls submerging the entire places in and around.
Pedestrians require to take about 1.2 km walk from the vehicular parking area. Both sides of the small road going from car parking to Falls viewing gallery small shops cropped up selling so called marble products. Bargain is usual in it.

This place is beautiful and fascinating all at once. I loved the individuality of each exhibit and spent over 4 hours perusing all of the attractions.

“Extensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

An impressive insight into tribal life in India with displays spread out over a very large area. Considerable effort has been made to show how life is in these remote tribal communities. Worth a visit when in Bhopal (and reasonable entry prices for foreigners).

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We could spend just about 30 mins as we reached there around closing time, however the little we saw was enough to impress us. Its a wonderful place and a must visit, especially if you have teens with a bit of interest in evolution of mankind.
