It is a small museum located to the west, inside the Taj Mahal complex. The entry fee is included in the main ticket price. It explains where the marble and gems used in Taj Mahal were sourced from, and offers insights about Shah Jahan, and the mughals in a simple way. It requires a small amount of time, but also...

Next to the Taj Mahal, within the same complex, is a building originally used as a Jal Mahal or Naubat Khana. This building now holds a small museum. There are no separate entrance charges to this museum and photography is not allowed inside. Even if it were, the light is insufficient to allow for any decent pics. The museum has... More

The museum is situated to the left of the Taj Mahal and entry is free with your ticket - but so many people miss it! It is very small and I'd have liked more info on the construction of the Taj Mahal - however the beautiful Moghul illustrations make up for this - make sure you visit!

It is a small museum located within the Taj Mahal complex. Only those interested in history and archaeology may find this museum interesting otherwise it can be avoided. However, there is no entry fee for visiting this Museum and quick visit can always be made. There are very few items on display. Photography is not allowed inside the museum.

Inside the Ta Mahal is Taj Museum. It preservers actual map of Taj Mahal and original Mughal documents used to pass orders. It also has a collection of all precious stones and their origin used in Taj Mahal.It's very small and takes only 15-20min to see.

This could be a wonderful museum but it's not as like most museums and monuments I've been to in India, there is very little background, context or interesting detail provided. About anything. If you don't know in advance, who these Kings were, what sort of kings they were, how women were treated - apparently one Moghul had a 500 strong... More
