This Museum has one of the best 360 Degree views on the Valley from its terrace. This Palace/Museum is partially open for Visitors. Precious artifacts and relics related to Ladakh's old monarchy are well-preserved in this museum, which particularly attract historians and anthropologists. Ancient coins, royal seals, regal costumes, precious jewelry and photographs are also displayed here. This palace museum... More

There is nothing unusually attractive about this Palace. If you have time at hand then you can plan it but not particularly make it a Must See spot. You can do away with this place also.

This is a must-see. Excellent collection of original Tangkhas and other artefacts... well preserved and well explained by the house keeper.

Stock Palace is an average Palace. Nothing great to see. The entry ticket is very Pricey and most of the places inside are not open to visitors. We cannot also click pictures at most of the places.

Do not waste time. It is not a palace. It is a very low graded museum with entry fee Rs 70.00 per head. Only attraction of the place is wide angle view of beautiful stock village from top which you may observe outside the museum.

The topfloor seemed to be very accomodating as living quarters in the summer period, and is organised as a museum, having a large number of very interestng articles. From the various musea we...

It is a long drive from the city and quite a disappointment.Exterior facade is good but interiors are not worth it.Considering that the royal family is still in residence ,we expected something grand,but were sadly let down.
