Don't waste your time and money (entrance doesn't come for free) on this 'dusthole' (thanks Donald!). However, it houses an impressive collection of old weapons, all nicely covered with antique dust and cobwebs. Has also on exhibition a dozen totally neglected vintage cars. Once the...More

They charge Rs50 per entry but no services available. This is the palace of Kashi king but very poorly maintained as compare to MP and Rajasthan palaces. Not deserved any rating as per the current condition.

Interesting collection of antics but the whole place (museums items as well as the entire fort) is very poorly maintained, very sadly.

Upkeep of this fort and museum is very poor. I was very disappointed to see priceless antique cars and other museum exhibits very poorly kept and displayed. Museum needs to employ proper curators and professionals to save this fort and museum from derelict state.

The museum had a good collection of artefacts. However what was missing was the information material a traveller would look for to take back.

Interesting peek to a glamorous past. The fort is now a dusty museum that shows some of the wealth and lifestyle of former rulers of this region. A little gloomy, however worth the 200 INR entrance fee and two hours visit.
