OK. Rather small and there are much better exhibits elsewhere. Certainly nowhere near 'superb' as one previous reviewer said. Go if you're there but don't make a special tip.

The ASI archeological museum is located in the Mumtaz Mahal within the Red Fort complex. It mainly exhibits artifacts of the Mughal period. There are collections of Mughal weapons and royal garments. The most interesting section is the gallery on Mughal miniature art and calligraphy. Worth taking a quick view of the exhibits while visiting this place.
The same ticket for the Red Fort also includes visit to this museum.

During my holidays in Delhi, I had visited the giant Red Fort complex and this museum of Archeological Survey of India is located inside Mumtaz Mahal in the fort complex. Many artifacts from the bygone Mughal era can be seen in this museum like Kings seat, beautiful Mughal paintings, clothes, weapons etc. This is a small museum but do visit if you are a history enthusiast.

Visiting this place will take you in ancient era. You will get to know how in ancient times kings used to live. It has various collection of weapons, dresses, warfare arms and ammunitions and heavy dosage of archaeological facts. To understand and explore Indian history one should visit this place which is a few metres away from India Gate.

Located inside Mumtaz Mahal of red fort, it's a small museum. Must visit for history enthusiast it showcases artifacts, clothes, etc of Mughal area. Takes hardly 20 mins to see the entire museum so one shouldn't miss while visiting red fort.

You can spend about 15-30 mins if you have already seen museums before. It can become very crowded, you can skip it.
