I was not expected that, so many great artifacts would be there in this museum, but I was amazed to see all those. Must visit place. If you want to click pics in museum, then you have to pay extra for that. For Camera, rates are different and for mobile camera rates are different.

This museum has extremely interesting exhibits on show and they are well preserved - partially by funds from the German government. The signs are partially in English and partially in Hindi.Prices are significantly higher for foreigners than for Indians. Bathrooms are very clean

the museum is a must visit for history-buffs and the casual visitors alike. it offers a great insight to our ancestors way of life and has innumerable invaluable artifacts. however, my one complaint is that they charge extra for taking our camera with us to click pictures, which is okay, but the glass cases covering the artifacts are very reflective....

It's a treat for art lovers, nicely maintained museum is always nice to see.Nominal entry fee and boom. You are into the world of great art, they have small but beautiful collection of art pieces, from modern art to ancient idols. Definitely must visit this place once.

The place has an excellent collection of artefacts, all well documented. One must budget sufficient time (at least 2 hours ) to properly take in and assimilate all the items on display.
