Awesome museum, it really informative and has a great architecture style. One of the best museum in amritsar and located very close to harmandir sahib. I found the ticket a little expensive (250 INR) but its okay

You can spend as little as half an hour to as much as 5 hours exploring this museum. This is one of the best museums I have been to, comparable to the museums in Europe. Walking distance from Golden Temple.

Spent a couple of hours at The Partition Museum in Amritsar. Even knowing some of the history about Pakistan and India, I still found this museum full of information, artifacts and videos that illuminated this topic even more. A must see when in Amritsar!
