Though lot of effort has been made to develop this museum cum panorama but lack of proper maintenance has rendered it worthless place. However a tourist may still visit it to get a glimpse of history.

1. Place is clean and nice. 2. historical and amazing portraits giving detailed explanation about sherepunjab life. 3. Panorma at top floor is somewhat not upto mark, should be upgraded more with latest technologies. 4. Can go during day time because it is completely covered. 5. Just near museum amusement park for kids which open during evening.

Made a very disappointing trip to this museum. It is badly maintained and there is not enough material to warrant a visit. It does have some beautiful pieces but not too many.

The place was undergoing renovation when we went... The main attraction is the Panaroma. The rest of the pieces were also good. This could be maintained better.,with some more informational details, however expect more so that historical importance making it a place to not to be missed in the list

The museum is small depicting life history of Maharaja Ranjit Singh with the help of photos. The entry fee is just 10 Rs. Photography is allowed free of cost. Remember to visit Panorama, which is on the first floor.

In the first floor of this museum, there is a mindblowing 3D panorama of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's war scenes. It is of life-size models and the lightings and ambience leaves a long lasting impression on your mind. Recommend a visit.

Did u ever know how Kohinoor came to India and was lost. Did ever know that there was ever a maharaja ranjit... a lovely light and sound show. All for a price of Rs 5. The artillery museum a one of a kind. What armament collection. Guess anywhere in the world a museum like this would cost a minimum 20USD... More

This place is great for kids and college students. I felt the history shared by Maharaja Ranjit ji is great. His time was a golden period.
