“Average museum with an exhorbitant entry fee”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

There are some good collection of paintings. So, if you are interested in this, pay a visit. But, the palace itself felt too plain and uninspiring as a king's abode. Definitely not worth the huge entrance price.

The toilet facilities are in no way usable. There are a number of stairs to go up and down - all to visit similar looking rooms.

Expect to get a view of the palace grounds below unless it is covered for some wedding event or the other. I was definitely not amused.

Must visit place for museum lovers. provides you with great view and history artifacts. Also make sure that you have a guide here which will cost you Rs 200 or so.

“Lots and lots of gems to see... just stay patient”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

The museum hosts a lot of great items! some gems even!
We found the museum a bit messy and composed of too many rooms looking exactly like the next one...
The walls and some paintings are damaged by people "touching" or just hanging out against these...
but if you stay patient, you'll find some gems and amazing items.
We particularly liked some of the fine paintings showing elephant rides, tiger hunting and Holi.

“the Historical Palace Museum”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

its got some really unusual exhibits ...and worth a proper, long visit so as to see everything properly.
its very well-kept and clean.
but the place needs proper guides.
many exhibits need better explanations and more details, so we can understand the background better
