  • Wonderful place with excellent exhibits . Must go. It depicts glory of our brave soldiers very well. You feel proud to be an Indian and to be here. Souvenir shop is also very good and very reasonably priced. But they only except card payments which is a minus point. There is a movie shown which one must see. The staff managing the movie theater could be more courteous and polite. There is a canteen also which serves good food at a reasonable price. Guides are well educated.
  • Worth a visit if you travel to Jaisalmer.. it will give you patriotic feeling and remind of our unsung and real hero's who contributed by sacrificing life for the nation.. many articles and recovery items displayed in the museum all are worth a look.. little away from city but not much as same is on straight road..
  • A must visit place when in Jaisalmer. Tells you about history about Indian Army History with a small 12 min movie. You feel a great sense of patriotism and positivity inside the campus. Do visit. Entry ticket for adult costs ₹30, Movie ₹25. For school children it's free.
  • Upcoming sort of a museum. Gives us a great chance to touch and feel some war machines. A 14 minutes movie also reminds us of the heroics of 1965 war. Click yourself with Tanks, war planes... It would be a great idea to talk about peace also at the same place; i am sure it will not dilute the valour of our forces. Improvement area: One is left to fend for himself inside the campus, a little hand holding would go a long way. Though one feels surprised with the flexibility at hand!
  • It is must visit place for everyone who is coming to jaisalmer. Place perfectly describes the bravery of Our soldiers. The way they fought in the various wars. All the wars are described in photos as timeline. War captured tanks are also displayed. All of the above must watch the video film illustrating the bravery of heroes.
