  • This place is a live Harappa and Mohenjodaro. When i went inside this place for the first time, I thought...yeah..it's gonna take me half an hour and we'll be driving our way home well within time. But after I stepped Inside, I never wanted to get out. There place is packed up with every bit of history, mostly history of India and it's 5000 year old civilization. Got to see the arts from all ages and how well that has been preserved. And yeah..it took me 3 hours to get out. A must place to be if you are visiting BHU campus.
  • Recently I visited here, I observed thoroughly the exhibition about the life of Alice Bonner.. This place is at top in "must see" list .. It gives you everything about Indian culture, tradition and memorable history... Please have one visit ...if you really want to know many thing special about INDIA.
  • Very rich collection of history, Statues​of all God's, wonderful maintenance and it will take one full day to see clearly everything there and Here Alice Boners life was shown and paintings are excellent
  • The Best time to visit this place is In starting of Summer season. This is Place where you can see the History of making BHU, You will also come Across Malviya ji Clothes and His teeth and albums and also will be familiar with the excavation done of Department of Ancient Indian History & Archeology (A. I. H. C & Arc).
  • Very interesting place. Not many museums as well maintained as this. Every Indian must go here once.

Where to stay in Varanasi

The old city of Varanasi has a long history of pilgrimage and tourism, and its range of accommodations has developed to a high degree to meet the vast demand from across India and further afield. Perhaps the most interesting and atmospheric place to stay can be found in the area surrounding the ghats on the west bank of the river. You can find an eclectic mix of simple hotels and guesthouses all the way from this point up to the main train station. North of the station sit the most luxurious of the city's accommodations, with views of the tributary that runs through the north, and a range of additional facilities.
