This museum is located inside the campus of Hotel Lallgarg and Laxmi Niwas...Even if you r not a history lover, this place will not dissappoint you...
Hundrerd of paintings and photographs of the maharaja's and their geneartions are displayed in an excellent way...The weaponry, swords, Palki, dresses, games etc are all there...

It's definately worth a visit...

The palace is definitely well maintained and has some interesting things to see. It is also nice that the guides here take the visitors in a group on the tour of palace. It is definitely huge. It'll be nice not to miss a visit to this palace when in Bikaner.

An ok museum, pretty hotel, but check out the stables where the "royalty" still keeps his horses. I got to hang around them, pet them and give them some grass.

So you want to pacify millions of locals thousands of miles from home with the least effort while you take the resources. The best thing to do is use the existing power structure for your own ends. But should you send your Hindu vassals and tools of empire a Christmas card? Apparently, yes!
If you wish to examine the subtleties of empire then visit the museum which is a tribute to the lives of the maharajas of Bikaner. Lots of family photos and pictures and letters. Unfortunatley, with each succeeding generation the family's links to the British royal family weaken. Personal visits become letters and then letters signed by relatives or ladies-in-waiting and finally the responses come from bureaucrats. There are also photos of a Bikaner princess who appears to be the star of the family now and really loves guns. I gave the place a three because I don't think this will appeal to too many people but in fact I enjoyed it. The palace is now a hotel and royal residence so that is not part of the experience but you can get some good exterior photos of the palace across the broad lawn. One odd thing. There is a man that rushes through the museum compulsively turning off lights in empty galleries and usually belatedly turning them on in occupied galleries. With a heritage hotel on the property and the maharaja trust and all it was peculiar to see this attention to either saving light bulbs or electricity (I am still not sure).
