A guide will take you through the museum which also features a diorama depicting the Maharaja's six major battle exhibitions supported by battle-field sound effects. Spend time in the adjoining Ram Bagh, a lush garden conceptualized from the Mughal garden of Lahore, and named after Guru Ram Das, the fourth Sikh Guru.
