Cracking outdoor museum
Mar 2020 • Couples
This was very interesting even though I’m a British visitor.
30 rupees per person entry and no extra charge for a camera!
Very well done. I now know what the Chicken Neck is!
Shame the souvenir shop and AV theatre were closed.
Allow at least an hour.

Must visit place for every Indian! Sure to make you realize the value of & sacrifices made by Indian armed forces!
Feb 2020
If you're Indian & visiting Jaisalmer, then you simple cannot skip this place. Tanks & other military vehicles on display. Accounts of all the wars fought & won by Indian army till date! Short film screening showing the achievements of Indian army. Souvenir shop. I absolutely loved it. This place will make you realize about the achievements of Indian Armed Forces. It'll make you feel how indebted we are to our armed forces, who protect the nation day & night! Just go for it. Respect, love, blessings & a salute to our armed forces! Jai Hind!
(Tip: Hotel taxis/car hires can cost you very high to visit this place, as its around 15 km from Jaisalmer. Instead you can get in-touch with following auto guy I met. He can take you here for lesser amount. Mr. Anil +91 6376435856 .. He can even take you for a day trip of attractions in Jaisalmer city, at a very reasonable price. Please note that I've taken his due permission & then only have posted his number here.)

A MUST VISIT IN YOU HAVE CHILDREN OVER 8 YRS OLD
Feb 2020
A place full of Indian war history.There is a multi media show which every one should watch. The museum has a nice collection of tanks and other war equipment captured from the Pakistani army.Visit to the souvenir shop should not be missed, moderately priced gift and collectibles are available. Please avoid taking a guide they will rush you through the museum and you wont remember a thing.They are thoroughly incompetent and would read the information from their phone.

Feeling Proud because of our Heroes
Feb 2020 • Couples
The Jaisalmer War Museum located at the side of main road b4 you reach Jaisalmer. The War Museum contains the vintage Tankers which took part in our victory during war in 1961 & 1971. The area is so welly maintained by Indian Army and showcased all the vintage equipment were used during war which brought us victory by sacrificing the lives of our real heroes. The National Flag hoisted in the center of the green lawn / park of the museum which multiplies the beauty and confidence in ones heart. The Museum also have an souvenir shop which sells a large variety of items at very reasonable rate with the Indian Army pictures. The museum also undertake light and music shoe in the evening and if u want to witness that, u must take different entry ticket. Nice Place u must visit.
