The Queen's Palace or Rani Mahal was constructed by Raghunath II Newalkar. This erstwhile home of the Rani of Jhansi has now been converted into a museum, which displays a whole lot of memory of Rani Lakshmi Bai as well as archaeological evidences of the era belonging to 9th to 12th century that were discovered in recent times.The palace has an open courtyard with arched chambers around it that is completely different from the typical Bundelkhand architecture. The palace was one of the main centres of the Great Sepoy Mutiny of 1857. The Rani Mahal is decorated with colourful paintings. The palace also has a Durbar Hall located in the second floor that has a genuine painted wood-panelled ceiling.
