The palace is beautifully maintained and though you cant see much its a beautiful palace. For me the best part was to see the vintage cars collection. It has some of the best royal cars that i have ever seen.

Beautiful palace from the outside, not sure it's worth paying 60 rupees to go inside to the museum. History was good to know, but don't expect to see any interior of the palace itself.

Nice place, do not miss the old timers! The museum itself is ok and the walk through it is quick. The major part of the palace is a 5 star hotel. A "should see" when in Jodhpur.

We were staying at Umaid Bhawan so it was easy for us to visit but well worth it as we learnt a lot about the history of the palace.

Though the forts and palaces at Rajasthan are rich in architecture, Umaid Bhavan really represents luxury in the way we understand it today. Crockery from all over the world, 3D paintings, Fascinating and unique wall clocks, Umaid Bhavan is a must visit!

the musuem is but a miniscule part of the opulent palace and is similar to the kings facebook timeline,it is a personal lifestory of the prince.it is better to visit the umaid bhawan hotel to see the palace as it was.the musuem is not worth the effort to go there.

A very small portion of the palace is open to visitors making it a very long way to the palace with very little to see there. The collection of antique cars owned by the royal family is worth seeing.

We visited the museum so that we could see a bit of the palace. Really, there are some interesting photographs and pieces of furniture and crockery -- but not a lot else. However, you do get to see a little bit of the palace, and realize how huge the place is.
