Bharatpur Museum, located inside the Lohagarh Fort, houses some of the unique and archaic artifacts and archaeological resources. The museum building was once the administrative block of the rulers of Bharatpur and was known by the name "Kachahari Kalan". Later in 1944, it was converted into a museum.
Scriptures belonging to the 1st century form the prominent exhibits of the museum. The art gallery houses various samples of miniature paintings that were originally made on the leaves of mica, Peepal tree and old litho-papers. Various paintings of the Maharajas of Bharatpur are also displayed in the gallery. Tourists can also see the guns and cannons of the 18th century in this museum.
The museum has been segmented into five sections, namely - archaeology, children's gallery, armoury, arts & crafts, and industry. The museum is open for a visit between 10:00 am and 4:30 pm daily.
