Government Museum of Sirohi was established in 1962. The museum came in to existence to preserve the archeological wealth of the region. Located within the premises of Raj Bhavan, the museum is divided in to various sections. The first section exhibits weapons, musical instruments, ladies ornaments, and garments belonging to hill dwellers. The second section has a series of miniature paintings, shields, a small canon, and some carvings on local wood.
