  • An amazing display of art collected by the Baroda royalty. Also on display is the small live-steam garden railway locomotive that used to haul the prince and princess from the palace to their school. The glass in front of most exhibits reflects a glare and prevents a clear vision of the artefact. Do not miss this museum.
  • Visiting Hours : 10.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. Closed : Monday and important public holidays. Admission Fee : Rs. 10/- for adults Rs. 5/- for children. Rs. 100/- for educational group The museum was established in 1961. The museum is run by a private trust. The museum is noted for is modern display. The collection includes a few copies of Greek, Roman and later European sculpture and some Masterpieces of European oil paintings, sculptures by Felici, French furniture etc. The museum collections fall into many categories. However, it is noted for oil paintings by Ravi Varma, sculptures made of marble, Greeco-Rpman arts, Chinese and Japanese art etc. The oil paintings representing members of the then Gaekwad princely ruling family are striking.
  • Wonderful private museum. Located in a palace compounds, surounded by trees and gardens.
  • A lot of items as usually seen in palace museums. People with interest in art will like it.
  • This museum is located inside the laxmi vilas palace compound and they again charge 80 rupees to visit this place. Unconditionally, these two places of vadodara is to generate profit than attracting customers. Again a museum that enunciates same history of the same palace. So, its not worth to visit.
