Great place to visit. Very well maintained. I could see a person constantly cleaning the surroundings. The garden is well maintained. In the museum, you can see old collections of crockery, paintings etc. You cannot see the entire palace because one side is a hotel now, and on the other side the royal family resides. Entry ticket is ₹30 per adult.
The place is accessible from city. An auto should be a good option and if you are travelling in the city. Parking facility is good. The typical required time is about 2 hours. The museum consists a lot of private collection and day to day items used the royal family. The passion related to sports is very evident and is worth spending some time. The vintage car collection is priceless and wonderful to see. Overall a good place to visit
