Fodor's Review

Near Gadsisar Lake, this small museum is run by local historian and teacher NK Sharma, who also runs the Folklore Museum, and admission to this interesting anthropological museum is included in the Folklore Museum entry fee (the two museums are slowly merging and will be in the same building in the future, so check before you visit). The culture centre has a collection of artifacts about music, culture, and life in the desert including camel decorations and an interesting opium-mixing box. They host daily puppet shows at 6:30, with another at 7:30 pm during peak season.
