I was particularly excited to visit this museum and I was not disappointed during my visit. I appreciated the various collections cared for by the museum.

Its an average place for spending 500 rs and not getting the things you expect. All the things present can be found in other museums as well. Overall an OK OK place.

For 500 rupees (foreigners) one would expect something spectacular but it is rather average - many of the items in its collection are not very old and majority of stuff is found elsewhere in museums. Not really worth the money - look at the nice...More

Very famous Indian art and history museum. Really wonderful collections to be seen. Right place to know more about Indian history, culture and ancient art work. Photos can be taken but with an extra charge. Could easily spend 3 or 4 hours at this location.

Is the Ghandi museum near the other museum

Yes. it is known popularly known as Manibhavan, it contains all the great collections of Gandhiji.
I am baffled why a nice museum like this cannot be air conditioned. And will not some of the good paintings need a little bit of climate control rather than be in hot and humid conditions.
