  • Great place if you love history. Well maintained. The children's museum is a good addition. Had been planning to visit it for long. Kiddo enjoyed the books, toys and small activities there. There is a place where kids can get coins pressed, which seemed to be a hit with most young visitors being really happy that they get to use the machine to make the coins.
  • This museum has loads of offerings on display. It's quite very historic and antique along with the monument itself. You will have to reserve your whole day if you want to explore it fully. I visited this place in just ₹10 back in 2006 but just then entry charges were skyrocketed to ₹65 in 2013 and who knows what are they charging now?
