This palatial building is a marvellous example of French-chateau style architecture built by King Amar Singh of the Dogra Dynasty. This museum is housed in the Amar Mahal Palace, built in 1862 in a unique, French-chateau style of architecture.

It was built in the nineteenth century for Raja Amar Singh, a Dogra king by a French architect on the lines of a French Chateau. The palace was donated to the Hari-Tara charitable trust by Dr. Karan Singh for use as a museum.

After the death of Maharani Tara Devi in 1967, her son Dr. Karan Singh and his wife Mrs. Yasho Rajya Lakshmi converted this palace for use as a museum. The museum was inaugurated on April 13, 1975 by then prime minister of India Mrs Indira Gandhi.
