The collection of the museum reflects the life histories of the former kings of Nepal. The collection of Arms and Ammunition, customs of the Royal family, models of the cabinets, etc are of historical and political importance.The Royal interest in hunting for recreation is one of the key reason of establishment of the first National Park of Nepal; Chitwan National Park.Although the Royals exploited the top carnivores by hunting for pleasure and pride, indirectly it had helped in conservation of Biodiversity.
