About 2.5km west of Scandal Point and a stiff walk up to the telecommunications mast, the state museum is home to an impressive collection of miniatures from Kangra and Rajasthan, as well as Chamba embroidery, coins and jewellery, temple carvings, paintings of Shimla, and weapons – including some massive and unwieldy-looking blunderbusses. There is also a gallery devoted to the visits that were made by Gandhi to Shimla.
