Silk robes and various “Farmans” bearing original imperial seals, issued by emperors including Jahangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb are the main exhibits in the museum. This museum has a brilliant collection of terra-cotta ware, paintings, coins, sculptures and arms. Some of the exhibits are from the pre Harrapan period. The terra-cotta is said to be from the Gupta and Kushan periods (4th to 5th century).
