The museums has many sections - displaying warfare items, animals, paintings, idols etc. It gives you view of multiple facets of the Rajput culture in Rajasthan is a good learning and watching experience. Should visit this once if you are coming to Alwar or Sariska.

Entry is cheap and you will like this place if you love history. Overall a good museum. I liked the area with the weapons the most as they have a huge collection. If you ask the people sitting there about the items, they will tell you. There is also a huge area with a collection of old paintings.

A small area of city palace converted to museum housing some old scripts and weaponries. The animal statues were the best part looking absolute real.
