The museum has tableaux on the life of the Rani of Jhansi on the ground floor. The first floor is devoted to sculptures, paintings, etc. The exhibits are good, but the descriptions are generally brief and do not contribute to the viewer's understanding (imagine a life sized statue marked "human figure"). Very often the electricity supply fails and the diesel... More

A extremely informative place for getting the information of Indian freedom struggle. The sequence of the history is extremely well documented. However maintenance of the place needs to be taken care of.

The museum, predominantly dedicated to Rani of Jhansi, is well maintained but its layout could be better. Lots of her armoury items and photographs, depicting her life since childhood.

We came here expecting the life & times of the Queen of Jhansi. Instead, the museum is more about the 1857 mutiny against the British, which is interesting in itself. There are collections of weapons, stamps, coins, paintings etc. There are stone relics from nearby Hindu & Jain temples as well. You can easily spend more than two hours here... More

This museum is located near Jhansi fort, shows all the history related to Jhansi fort, Rani Lakshmi Bai and fight with Britishers. This museum is small but well maintained. Its nice to visit the museum if you want to explore the history related to Jhansi.

The ground floor has interesting exhibits from the life of Lakshmi Bai, a leader of the 1st war of independence. Worth spending half an hour there. When we visited, there was no power and the generator could not be switched on.

The museum was not great. Could have been maintained better but still was fine. You can easily cover this in half an hour. Nonetheless we did learn about Rani Jhansi more specially as we visited this right after visiting the fort
