Within the Residency compound is this small museum which is mostly underground where many of the British died. In fact there are still large holes in the walls made from the cannon balls that were fired during the siege. The museum shows a model of the entire Residency grounds and buildings as well as paintings by British artists and pictures of local Nawabs.

Open: 10am-4.30pm Mon-Sat. Closed Sundays. Admission: Rs5 for all.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
