This structure was a functional part of the Taj and is now a museum with a lot of compelling artifacts and explanations of the planning and building of the Taj.

Located inside Taj Mahal complex, west-end. This is a must see for Taj Mahal visitors. Doesn't take more than 30 mins, but the arte-facts (farmans, coins, paintings etc) is worth seeing to imagine what life would have been during 1600s. Get that sense of completeness by visiting this place before you leave Taj Mahal Complex.

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.
