  • Good collection of artifacts from Harappa. Excellent collection of coins from ancient to modern India. Ancient sculptures from all over India, a weapons gallery and hall of fame dedicated to the gallantry and sacrifice of Indian soldiers from ancient to modern times. Most of the sections have Audiovisual presentation. You have to buy 📷 ticket for mobile camera also but it's worth it.
  • It is a private museum(one can hardly guess). Neatly maintained. Friendly staff. -->Special audio tour available. -->Very near to Hadimba temple. Has many antiques and models. Nice place to visit.
