  • This is one amazing museum. Pro tip- purchase audio guide with ticket. It will cost 50 rupees per person, but totally worth it. With audio guide, you may need 4-5 hours to cover all rooms. It is recommended to start early in morning, so u don't have to rush through by the end. DO HIT A LIKE BUTTON IF THIS WAS HELPFUL
  • I went to this history museum with my cousin a month back. This museum is big, take u 3-4 hours minimum to see everything properly. It has 4 floors with all historical models of utensils/stone pieces/wooden items/idols/weapons of time millennia. Inside feels like a government building. Stuff must be more than 5000+. Photography allowed sparing 50 rs/person. Cafe available for eateries. Museum shop available for merchandise. I bought museum guide book. Gardens & Buddha stone head present. Entry ticket applied. Overall nice place to visit with anyone. One of biggest museum I saw in India so far. Rating- 5/5.

  • It's amazing museum, one can go with family. If your student you should carry your i card. Because for student entry charge is less. It's 4 floors museum, i just love the ground floor. In ground floor you can see all very old god statue and preserved animal (such as variety of birds, monkey, lion, tiger, snakes, all kind of fish, and whale, crocodile etc.). It will take around 3 to 4 hrs to see everything, so one should morning.
