Gwalior Things to Do: 56 reviews and 163 photos


After walking around the first few rooms of the museum, I had to admit that I wasn't that impressed. They were dark, smelt funny and needed work doing to them but then I climbed a staircase and everything changed. Beautifully painted and guilded rooms with columns, 19th century tiles and marble. The first large room is dedicated to the previous Maharaja, Madhavrao Scindia (1945?2001), who died in a plane crash, with exhibits such as some of his personal belongings like his cricket bats, (he was President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India from 1990 to 1993), and golf clubs, photo's and his private desk.
