To me it’s a small city museum, not for tourists.
Some simple items are displayed.
Not so much significant.

The half of the museum building is for people to study.

In an entry fees of Rs. 20/Indian visitor, the museum gives a glimpse to the life of General Maharaja Sir Ganga Singh, the ruling Maharaja of the princely state of Bikaner from 1888 to 1943. He is widely remembered as a modern reformist visionary.

The museum is spread across different rooms and starts with a tiger shot by the maharaja followed by other rooms which showcase his paintings along with personal belongings like arms, costumes, musical instruments. A silent, peaceful and a great place to visit! Most of the stuff is from the 20th sanctuary and is preserved with great care in glass ensuring a neat presentation of different things arranged really well.

Every room has a name according to the displays inside - Ganga Gallery, Lifestyle gallery, Armour Gallery, Miniature paintings gallery, Coin Gallery, Sculpture Gallery and Darbar. A wax statue of Maharaja made 2 years back displayed at the museum looks almost real. The charges for foreign visitors are Rs. 100/-. Children below 7 years of age enter free. The timings are 12 Noon to 8 PM.

The Ganga Singh Museum is located inside the Junagarh Fort Complex. The museum is very well kept with displays of ancient weaponry and even an old bi plane. The display boards are also very informative and overall we found this to an excellent place to visit.

A place not be missed when in Bikaner, I was so surprised by its neatness and well lighted displays. Many of the big museums of Indian cities were put to shame by this small museum run by Rajasthan government.
Opens up only at 12 P.M and entry fee is ₹20/person/Indian. No charges for photography on mobiles.
They’ve got artefacts from the Gupta Age right down to the time of the last Maharajahs of Bikaner.

Even accepting the price differentials for foreign tourists, this was a real ‘scraping the barrel’ experience. Just a few ground floor galleries displaying a largely underwhelming collection of artefacts, weaponery, miniatures and some truly dreadful paintings. Surly staff, no visitor seating and dirty washroom. We were glad to get out. Don’t go, even like us, you you naively think this might just be Bikaner’s saving grace - it isn’t.

This museum has a wide collection of Maharaj Ganga Singh's armory, war collectibles, accessories and wardrobes stuff on display. War weapons typical of Rajasthan can be seen here with different motifs and carvings.
