H.H.Maharaja Sir Jiwajirao Scindia Museum
H.H.Maharaja Sir Jiwajirao Scindia Museum is established in a part of the Jai Vilas Palace, Gwalior built by H.H.Maharaja Jayajirao Scindia in 1874 and is trully a treat to the eye. The Palace is built combining three different architectural styles Tuscon, Italian and Corinthian with a unique mix of Indian architectural elements harmoniously coexisting at one place.
H.H.Maharaja Sir Jiwajirao Scindia Museum or J.S.M. was established in 1964 in the memory of Late H.H.Maharaja Jiwajirao Scindia who was the last ruler of the Scindia dynasty to rule the State of Gwalior before India became a Republic and all erstwhile kingdoms became its part.
J.S.M. has a rich collection of antiquities and truly is one of its kind museum in India.
