  • The Museum is very near to Jaisalmer town. Its a small green oasis in the desert. It shows a movie about our martyrs in battle of 1972. There is a small store with memoirs. A little snack house served...  more »

  • A beautiful memorial on the way to Jaisalmer. Not mis place. Seized tanks and trucks etc from Indo-Pak war of 1971 are on display with detailed information. Must visit place for pol of all ages.
  • A place to see the Armed Forces deed of gallantry & valour. Well managed with all amenities. Souvenir shop sells good quality accessories with War Museum logo. A nice place to visit.
  • At the entry one must show his identity card to enter , no parking charge . Then go to reception , entry fees is based on no of members. Adjoining to reception room no 1 there is shop where u can buy T shirt , jackets, hats, keychain etc. In room no 2 there is short film presentation of army about 15 min. In room 3 a hall is there to show our pride BSF. Next to it is longewala hall to memorize that moment of war. Really it is wonderful place one who visit jaisalmer, must also visit this place. Proud to be indian.
  • If a person is coming to Jaisalmer and not visiting this war memorial then he/she is missing half good of the Jaisalmer. It's the place which makes you proud of your Indian Army, it makes us aware that how our soldiers laid their lives for ur. This is the place where you can get plenty of knowledge about Indian Army and it's weapons etc. I have visited twice. Last but not least must purchase a souvenir from Army store and watch a short movie also.
  • Nice place to stop by en-route Jaisalmer. They have a nice display of captured enemy tanks and Indian army tanks. The museum is nice as well. Rs.20 entrance ticket. Guide available upon request at fixed fee of: 100 for up to 4 people; 200 for bigger groups. There is a nice canteen for snacks. Tea coffee through vending machine. Toilet facility is available. The audio video presentation of 12 minutes did not do justice to our great army and was probably a result of bad editing.
