Loads of information to read. Museum is a bit 'old' - but still really interesting. Possible to skim read, and get a good history without reading everything. 100 rupees per foreigner for entrance fee. All displays on 3 levels.

In the UK we are all aware of the Gurkhas who have given amazing service to the British army over many years. This museum helps to give the visitor a full understanding of their valour and contribution. Well worth a visit.

I visited with my partner who is in the Army and it was a truly moving exhibition dedicated to the brave, courageous and strong Gurkhas! Highly recommend if you are interested in Military history.

Spend a couple of hours here. It is a very interesting museum of the Ghurha regiments and I learned a lot about them. If you have any interest in military history it is definitely recommended.

Admission 200r. A small and worthy museum dedicated to the brave Gurkhas, made more relevant due to the British connection. Not on our tour itinerary but should have been.

This place is a museum. That means it has artefacts such as uniforms, photos, and a few weapons. The geology section of the Natural History Museum in London contains rocks, which hold little interest for me. So I don’t go to that part. I am...More

If you grok ferocious warriors wielding fearsome spears, historic reconstitutions of the glories of British Empire, this is for you. Otherwise, you may find boring the well presented exhibits.

This is like any other ordinary museum. This place need to be renovate. There is nothing much to see. You can also avoid this place.
