I have been going to this place for several years now and strongly recommend it to those interested in the Harappan civilization. Take your time in exploring the different sections and reading about the items displayed.

Beautiful building and displays. Fair price for foreigners (free audio guide included in the price.) A strict photo policy is enforced. Set aside at least 90 minutes for this visit if you're in a hurry.

This museum has a little bit of everything: paintings, sculptures, pottery, textiles, weapons, history, religion etc. Still it is not overwhelmingly large, so you can walk through it in about two hours. A great introduction to Indian culture. I really enjoyed it.

This is a great place for the art and books lovers. The place is built during the british era and its the best gift given by them. Though the management is bureaucratic I am hoping to do an event there one day.
