An amazing museum in a spectacular location. This should be on everyone’s list of “must see” places. My father was in the army and being an army brat, I really appreciated this museum. It is very well organized and the location is just breathtaking.

It's a beautiful calm place surrounded by beautiful garden. We get a glimpse of army men's life. It was a proud moment for me when I saw Bharat pak 1971 war photos and a surrender document. I think it's a biggest surrender in the world.
