  • 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.

  • First of all I wanted to thank you for the establishment of this museum. Every Indian will feel proud after coming their. Perfect place to know our Indian independence history. They also show a short movie on this which will make you proud Indian. A must visit place. Jai Hind!🇮🇳

  • Worth a visit if you travel to Jaisalmer.. it will give you patriotic feeling and remind of our unsung and real hero's who contributed by sacrificing life for the nation.. many articles and recovery items displayed in the museum all are worth a look.. little away from city but not much as same is on straight road..

  • A must visit place when in Jaisalmer. Tells you about history about Indian Army History with a small 12 min movie. You feel a great sense of patriotism and positivity inside the campus. Do visit. Entry ticket for adult costs ₹30, Movie ₹25. For school children it's free.

  • The museum has been well arranged and well maintained. We feel proud being Indian. We salute our brave soldiers who laid their lives for the country.
