It is an archeologist dream.

Situated on one of entrance of Gwalior Fort. Looks like very less people visit this place. You can see very old artifacts, sculptures, statues and things like that.

Interesting with a good guide to point out and explain the development of Indian sculpture. Otherwise, it could be quite boring for those without a background as most of the exhibits merely have an identifying label and date.

Archaeological items are being maintained in an open air museum, which in itself is a place of rather high historical importance. Must visit.

The museum, located inside an old palace, is a little hiden gem, clearly known to only a few. It has one of the best collection of sculptures in India, and one can enjoy them completely undisturbed, a rare privilege in the country. The state of upkeep is in line with the visitor numbers, last renovation must have been made in... More

How can artifacts be left out to the vagaries of nature? Pieces from our history were lying out in the sun or in non climate controlled rooms

Here is very good collection of Sculptures created around 1000 years or more, ruins of monuments conserved and you may feel richness of that era. Must visit for history lovers.

Ancient monuments, artifacts, things used by Royal Families, Jain Teerthankar's idols and what not. This place is pretty interesting to see roots of Indian civilization.

Very good piece of historical structure. But an awful place to visit in summers. The temperature these days are around 34 degrees and there is no shade to stand. Even the outskirts does not have even a folliage to shade. Ince inside, it is cool. But the stairs are too dark and half of the CFL lamps are not working.... More
