Vadodara Museum and Picture Gallery

#Art
Located at: Vadodara
Gujarat, India

The museum houses a diverse collection, much of it gathered by Maharaja Sayajirao III, including statues and carvings from several Asian regions, an Egyptian room and some rather mangy zoology exhibits. The gallery has lovely Mughal miniatures and a motley crew of European masters.
The museum and the picture gallery are two separate two-storied buildings built in the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture. The pure gallery building is somewhat smaller and designed in a simple European brick style, but it has Indian columns and open pavilions on the roof.

"The museum is quite big and doesn't charge much for a ticket. The maintenance isn't very good. It's fully ac though. Most of the antiques and stuff are eating dust. The museum sure is rich in variety of antiques. The art section is very small. I have many memories attached to this place. Whenever you visit, make sure you don't miss out the whale skeleton section. That's the only attraction worth watching here. Other than that, it's good for one time visit. "
