Glance and marvel at the collection of photos and pictures that belong to the British Raj Era in Shimla at this museum. The Shimla heritage museum is housed in a 120 year old heritage building itself, formerly known as the US Club.

The museum flaunts a set of over 50 rare pictures displaying the Viceregal Lodge, Rippon Hospital, Post Office, Town Hall, Gaiety Theatre, Combermere Bridge, Vidhan Sabha, Gorton Castle, Railway Board, Central Telegraph Office, the ARTRAC Complex and Barnes Court of Shimla.

  • Great museum shows history of himachal...

  • Having walked down from the centre of Shimla in order to make the most of the peace and quiet, my friend and I decided to pop into the museum. We wandered around the greenhouse and garden, with its unusual plants, before heading into the museum building. There was a fair amount on display, and details were available in English, but in some parts of the building photography was not allowed, the coats of arm area for example was one part out of bounds for cameras. My friend and I spent about an hour at the museum, The toilet facilities (one toilet for everyone) is something I would like to forget quickly as the experience was rather unpleasant. Everything else was ok and the people who worked there were pleasant.
