The most fascinating sight, to me, was the First World War plane that stands proudly inside the museum. It was piloted by the ruler of Bikaner during this war, and gfted to him by the British.
Also on view are an awsome collection of Rajput weaponry (daggers, axes and swords), inlaid hand-guns and camel-hide shields, and a 56kg suit of armour.
Photographs,paintings and personal items belonging to the royal family are also on display.
Another important object displayed is a pair of drums that belonged to the Saint Jamblioji, who predicted the dynasty of Rao Bika 450 years ago.

Inside the main gate is Abhivyakti, a handicraft shop selling goods made in the local villages around Bikaner. They sell bags, good rugs, bed covers, and cloth
