  • This is a government run museum and is opened from 10 am in the morning. It is good. Rates for children are Rs 25 and adult Rs 50. The location of the museum is in a narrow lane and there is no parking space available for vehicles. It is visible while driving the vehicle. The museum is located near Clock Tower.
  • Very peaceful and knowledgeable environment, with professional staff. Service provided by the staff is very well and good.
