It's a nice museum where you can find old classic things from 18-19th century. They have great collection of all indian musical instruments. They rebuilt the mastani mahal inside the museum.
Amongst the museums i have visited in India this is one of the cleanest and most informative museums. There are description for every object displayed here which makes it very interesting.
Great view of ancient items used by every day Indian people and a glimpse into everyday ife. Amazing collection, I do hope they expand into a new space soon to be able to show it all off! Ivory room and musical instruments were of particular interest.
