This is quite a small museum, detailing the history of Taj and its related events. Quite worth the time and no crowd at all.

You can entry here with the Taj ticket situated on ground of Taj. Not so impressive and poor light made me disappointing. You cannot take picture and i have not found too many relevance with Tajmahal.

There really isn't much to see here, it's included in your ticket to the Taj Mahal and in the grounds. There are small displays over three rooms and nothing relates to the Mahal.

The so called museum was quite shabbily kept. The display, cleanliness , and lighting needs improving.

Very interesting. It gives pictures and sketches of the building of the great Mausoleum. However, there are no pictures allowed. It is free and on the grounds of the Taj Mahal.

Taj Museum is a small museum located within the Taj Mahal Complex. The ticket price includes admission price for the museum.

Taj Museum is located in the Taj Mahal comples and is free to visit. It opens at 9:00 AM. It displays the construction materials, land materials and artificats of Mughal time. It gives you an idea about the history of the monument. We found it useful as we had our son curious to learn those facts.

A must see in Agra along with all that one can put in holiday there. I had a wonder time and would advise anyone to visit Agra and the Taj Mahal and all of the other attraction that the city has to offer

The Museum is located towards the western side and opens at 9:00 a.m., however considering the display at offer, its just a waste of time. Anyone who is very curious to know about the history of the monument can visit the same.
