Overall very good though no facilities for food

The museum was very big and it had wide collections. It was very hot inside since I visited in summer. Will be good if air conditioned. No food facilities around. Recommended to carry food, water and other requirement. Drinking water coolers were available here and there and was crowded. Recommended as must visit.
