  • Not well maintained, very few people visit although they are allowed to go without any extra charge. When I visited, in the whole museum area only 2-3 visitors were there. At the end you can say it, a good place to visit for those who have genuine interest in history
  • This museum have lots of things Old war related Stuff which were used by the army. Uniform of General of that time is also available here and many types of old Guns etc. When I see these things I start imagine that time.
  • The Museum was set up as a tribute to Indian soldiers who lost their lives in India and abroad during the World War. It is located in Naubat Kahana in its first and second floors. Please pay a visit and you will not be disappointed to see so many weapons. One can also see complete dress of Maharaja Pratap Singh of Jodhpur. Do visit, please.
  • Established as Shahjahanabad in 1648, The Red Fort was known as the capital of the Mughal Empire in India. Its construction is attributed to Shah Jahan who also built the famous Taj Mahal in Agra, and was also known by the name Quila Mubarak and remained the residence of the Mughal Imperial family for nearly 20 decades.
  • Nice collection and good replicas of some war instruments
