"An excellent place right inside the town. The museum contains artefacts and antiques from periods as old as 2nd century ad. These include Indian as well as East Asian collections. Apart from the museum, the place surrounding it is lush greenery and is excellent for spending your time. The zoo, Natural History museum, Art Gallery, and aquarium also lies in the museum compounds."

"Practically the lungs through which the city breathes! Spots many long living trees in its premises in addition to those in the adjacent zoo premises. Over all well kept and tidy, feels secure enough to let loose your kids here."
