About Jhansi Museum

Situated in the Jhansi Fort, the Jhansi Museum is a prominent attraction. The museum displays the rich history of the city as well as the entire region of Bundelkhand.

The museum’s collection speaks of the times and lives of the Chandela rulers. It houses some of the dresses, weapons, photographs and statues of the Chandela Dynasty. Besides, there is a picture gallery also that showcases the times of the Gupta Kings only. Also showcased are bronze statues, terracotta structures, paintings, manuscripts and coins.

A separate gallery dedicated to weapons also displays a good collection of arsenals and weaponry of the British rulers, Chandelas and Bundelas. The museum also has a collection of weapons used by the Rani of Jhansi during the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857.

"Jhansi museum" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
It is a very good place for history geeks. But I would recommend you first visit the Jhansi fort and then visit the Jhansi museum. Jhansi museum will take you on tour of indian history around 1500-1900. Museum consist some rare documents related to history and the guns and ammo, swords, bow and arrow. This museum have the some beautiful painting, books and rare coins related to relationship times. Here you can see the some great artifacts of hindu religion and jain religion.

"Walk around the history"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Apr 19, 2014
You must visit this museum to appreciate the history. Most of the museum will have broken sculptures as most of it was destroyed during the British attack. There is area completely out-and-out of Rani's stuff, artifacts, weapons and paintings. There is a very good sound and light show for half hour at the ground floor.
