What a great collection. What a great apathy. Any modern nation would be so proud of these wonderful collections that they would not leave any stone un turned to tell the world about it. This museum is rather just a place fr keeping artifacts with minimal labels. Still highly recommended for what it has inside.

It is one of the best museum in India. The collection is enormous. It is not possible to cover all the departments at one go. Children will be most enthused at the sight of the longest remains of a dianasore There are many old remains of the artefacts and statues to name a few.
