Established in 1878, the Government Museum of Jhansi houses artefacts and relics dating back to 4th century BC. The museum is located at the heart of the city and is one of the most famous tourist attractions here. It comprises four galleries that boast manuscripts, sculptures, statues, dating back to Gupta and Chandela dynasties, along with rare paintings, weapons, terracotta items and manuscripts.

The Chandela dynasty ruled Jhansi from the 10th to the 11th century and the museum has preserved treasured remnants of the reign. Besides, there is a fine collection of dresses, photographs, coins of gold, silver and copper, representing the Chandela dynasty. A picture gallery in the museum highlights the nuances of the Gupta period. The museum remains closed on Mondays and the second Saturday of every month.
