Kutch Museum Reviews & Ratings
Very interesting. More to see than we expected. Will definitely be back. To see know the history of our country. The oldest museum of Gujarat.
Loved the museum. Has a lot of information, historic, geographic as well as cultural . Loved the little time we got there. However, even though the timing says up to 530pm, they were already shooing us away at 5.15pm. The photography pass we took came to our rescue and we quickly took pics of the into we couldn't read. if you really wish to look at every detail in the museum, enter at 230pm and enjoy till 530pm. Cheers!
It show the different cultural lifestyle of people residing in Gujrat and gives an insight from their origin and their way of life style. It also has preserves from the ancient life . Nothing much to explore. You won't miss much of you skip this place.
Lots of information. Very nice museum, specially the design and display of many ethnic group of people who came in Kutch many years ago is very unique work. I have learned lot. Must visit this museum either after doing sightseeing or before doing sightseeing. I personally prefer after sightseeing visit the museum as I always ask myself to reshuffle my exposure visit knowledge
