Good place for historic items and preserved with complete information. There are guides available to provide information about the things placed. The light is low and suits the ambience. Will take around 2 hours for casual tour but may take more depending on the interest of the person.

Good place. There many antique pieces are shown in an organized manner. Well maintained and everything has a detailed explanation. There is shoe rack outside the museum and you have to keep your shoes outside before entering. The entry fee is Rs.100/person. If you want to see every antique thing with details, it will take much time.
