Not every antique attracts me but here the armoury and the mommy of Tutankhamen does attract me a lot. Wonderful place, almoist 200 years ago it gort built and still carrying the history along with it.

I visited the museum to get out of the heavy rain. Sadly, it is very dated,and it has not changed much in the last 70 years.
The exibits are old and I was charged 500 rupees,(about £5), whilst locals can get in for 20 rupees (20p); - which is nearer the mark.
For this p[rice, I would expect a map and guide book, but these were not available.
I understand that this is supposed to be one of the best in India? The Pitt Rivers Museum is Oxford is far superior, and free.
I wont be going again
