  • This place is situated in Company Bagh and will let you sneak into every inch of history of Maharaja Ranjit Singh Ji. The audio system inside is very good and the art used is appreciable.  more »
  • First it was hard to locate the ticket counter. One has to remove shoes before entering this museum. Panoramic views of various wars fought by Maharaja is really worth visiting.  more »

  • Ok place to visit on way to border ceremony. Several galleries of historical information on region - most with dioramas. Also has a fair amount of military history for those interested in this subject. Has a weird ‘9-D’ theatre session for 15 minutes which summarizes some of India’s military heroes - though is in Hindi language only. It then ends with a 3-d type roller coaster ride whilst you sit in the theatre- not sure how that ties in with the military history summary! Overall I found this place worthwhile to visit but would not go there only to see this - our make it part of a trip such as the border crossing ceremony
  • This is very costly. There are no such things to enjoy. Please improve this museum
