  • Since the Museum is to see the puppet show accompanied by music and song. What is commendable is that mr Sharma presents in English and Indian every single picture. The price is 50 rupees for the Museum and to 100 if you insert also indulged in, puppets (a must have). Don't miss hearing him sing. The shows are at 18 and 30 and at 19 and 30
