Wonderful place with excellent exhibits . Must go. It depicts glory of our brave soldiers very well. You feel proud to be an Indian and to be here. Souvenir shop is also very good and very reasonably priced. But they only except card payments which is a minus point. There is a movie shown which one must see. The staff managing the movie theater could be more courteous and polite. There is a canteen also which serves good food at a reasonable price. Guides are well educated.
