"A nice little museum which is located just outside the city of Jammu on the way to the famous Vaishno Devi Temple (Katra). The museum is well maintained(see pics). Good boarding and lodging facilities are available here including restaurant, bar and a couple of lawns which are rented out for events and parties. Good view of Tawi river flowing alongside (see pic of 'tawi river'). Bon Voyage."

"Ground floor includes paintings but the upper floor isn't worth visiting when it's charged at 100 per person. Absolutely worthless. Also I wonder why so many rooms are kept closed if it's planned to be made as a public museum."

"I liked the paintings kept in the museum. Such fine detailing of the painting makes them unique. And there is a small story which they depict. There is one painting of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru which gives the optical illusion that its shoes will point in whatever direction we face it."
