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.

This museum gives details of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the historical details of pujab during his time.One need to observe silence when in the museum and while entering shoes have to be removed. This museum can still be improved and better manage if more international tourist are to be attracted.

The Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum offers a great insight into the life and times of the king after whom it is named plus a history of Punjab via paintings, statues, weaponry displays and also a 3D display. Not a very comprehensive collection and could be curated better but it's worth a half an hour stop for all the history buffs.... More
