The Ganga Museum is a medium sized museum run by the local government. Around 10-15 rooms across two floors contain an interesting and varied collection ranging from sculptures, paintings, armour, ivory and wood work. The personal belongings and military uniforms of Sir Ganga Singh hold the centre stage. He was among the most celebrated and accomplished military men and civil administrators of the Princely States during the British Raj, and he is still held in very high esteem in Rajasthan. The museum is named after him, and the entry to the museum is graced by his marble bust. Just outside the entrance is a simple elegant memorial erected to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of his rule.
The museum charges a small fee but unfortunately does not allow photography. It is housed in a circular Art Deco building, with a simple and elegant facade. There are two entrances on either side of the building, one used by the museum, the other served as the entry to the town hall which now seems abandoned. The latter entrance is more interesting architecturally but the doors were locked and it seems this part of the building is not in use.
