  • A proud moment in our life that we visited the Jaisalmer War Museum. It should be made a compulsory picnic points by each and every tour operator. History of Hindustani Military and the development taken place from 1st world war till date is an mesmerizing experience. The film show for 15 minutes will have enchanting experience with Jaisalmer War Museum. You will come to know how our Military is vigilant in a tempature below 60°. A must visit place for everyone.
  • An extremely well maintained war museum, one of the best in the country. The entry fee is a nominal 30₹ per person. An excellent tourist spot. Has separate sections detailing India's past military glories from the olden times. A must visit!!
  • 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.
  • More than 5 stars for this place !! Take your time to observe the history of Indian victories. The place is self descriptive with sufficient information about each stuff on display. No guide required to show you around. It also has a souvenir store which has good things at very reasonable prices.
