Government Museum Overview

Ranked 5 of 9 sightseeing in Bharatpur

Government Museum, positioned in the centre of the famous Lohagarh Fort, exhibits a rich collection of archaeological wealth of Bharatpur as well as other areas in the vicinity. The administrative block of the rulers of the Bharatpur state, known as Kachahari Kalan, was converted into a museum in 1944 AD. Later, the Kamra Khas on the first floor was also added to the museum, displaying a collection of antiquities, sculptures and inscriptions.

The central wing of the museum displays collections from the 2nd century that demonstrate the art and skill of the region. Main exhibits at the museum include sculptures, dating back to 1st to 19th century AD, which were found during the excavation of old villages. Weapons used by the Jat rulers in battles of medieval age, paintings, manuscripts and zoological specimens are other exhibits. The art gallery showcases miniature paintings on leaves of peepal tree, mica and old lithopapers, along with paintings of the Maharajas of Bharatpur.
