This small but well-maintained museum has a lively set of objects discovered in the antique-rich surroundings and is a good place to begin your visit.

The highlights are the statues of Hindu gods, terracotta plaques depicting scenes from daily life, and some well-preserved bronze images found in nearby monastery ruins, which date from the Pala period. Other notable objects are the necklaces that look just like those sold in hippy markets all over the West and the fragments of ancient toilet seats! The gardens too are an attraction in their own right.

The museum is closed all day Sunday, and on Monday mornings. On other days, it usually closes for lunch from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. The main entrance to the Citadel is close by.
