If you're interested in history, then this is the place to be. A pretty, well-maintained, and clean museum with quite many antiques on display. Furthermore, if you're from Bombay, the architecture of this place will totally remind you of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus! However, owing to the load of tourists that come to visit, they could make provisions for a washroom.
