Honestly I went here with low expectations, knowing that my 4 and 5 year old boys have limited patience for museums. However, the impressive architecture and wide range of exhibits kept them captivated for well over an hour. The museum is cheap for Indian nationals but expensive (rs 500) for foreigners. Thankfully the kids got in free. Many of the exhibits seem untouched since early last century, but the decrepit, musty air kind of adds to the charm! Kids loved the huge gallery of taxidermied animals and the Egyptian mummy.

It is one of the ideal place to visit on a winter afternoon. Kids will surely enjoy this place. It has a very good collection and some very rare items. It is very interesting and a must visit. The ticket price is 20 INR.

Antique items of different era - with lot of sections & old items. Definitely worth visiting & spending more than an hour in it.
