Upon entering, the melody of Nepali music greets you, accompanied by images depicting the difficult lives of Ghurka soldiers. The rest of the first floor continues in the same fashion, with audio effects alongside informative displays that focus on military history. The second floor focuses on the traditions of each infantry regiment, while the third floor displays concentrate on engineering and transport regiments.

  • We spent around about an hour here. Something good to do on a day you don't have much on. Was only 200 rupees to enter. Educational and informative information provided throughout the museum. If you are staying by the lakeside you can get a city bus to and from for only 30 rupees.
  • A best place to know and learn the history of Gorkha. It has lots of pictures of Gorkha ex-servicemen. It shows lot of used artifacts belonging of Gorkha, which they has used in World war 2. It also tells about Sam Bahadur. If you are in Pokhra you must come here. Ticket is only 50 rupee.
  • This place reminds the courage of Gorkha Battalion during various wars.
  • All the details of brave Gurkhas preserved in a good way. Some historical documents, clothing, medals, awards and honours presented to the brave Gurkhas. Building looks just fine and common which does not depicted Gurkhas in general. All above mentioned items could displayed in a new way, in a digital or someone must be there to describe their importance.
  • It is one and only the museum in the country, very informative regarding the Gurkhas. Highly recommended for visiting.
