While the palace is imposing and grand the museum is disappointing compared to those in Udaipur and Jaipur. You can run thru it in 15 minutes. They mainly have pictures of the maharaja and his polo trophies, a collection of crystal wear.For auto enthusiasts there is a vintage car collection.Ticket price is reasonable Rs 30

Except for some vintage cars, there is nothing much to see in this museum. Yes the antique watches collections are good. You can see the portrait of the King who was portrayed in the movie Zubeida (Kareena kapoor). Probably a great place to stay if you can afford it. Museum is not elaborate and not that very interesting as the... More

It is more of a hotel....Very small place has been built as a museum and you feel as if something is missing. Collection of watches, clocks and vintage cars is good.

This place is a must visit because of how well known it is. Yes it is maintained quite well and is a good museum. the hotel however, one can't visit if one doesn't have a reservation. so if you're getting in hoping you will get to peek in at the hotel, sorry!

We were fortunate to be staying at the hotel, so we were accompanied by one of the palace footmen as a guide which enabled us to appreciate the items on display. In truth, if you have not seen the magnificence of the interior of the palace, this museum would be a little disappointing. It is mainly a collection of various... More

Jodhpur as such is so rich in heritage that one gets a bit of overdose visiting the forts, museums, palaces in short time span. Each of these museums have so many unique pieces of art, that after a few days, you get accustomed to being surprised. Umaid bhavan palace has again many pieces of art and technology on display.

I think this is your normal average museum. At least not my cup of tea. Perhaps because after seeing so many palaces in India with intricate buildings compared to this palace which was built quite recently.. There is nothing much to see except few pictures and things and owned by the royals that are not being kept very well. From... More

Umaid Bhawan Palace is touted as a major tourist attraction in Jodhpur. But, a visit to the palace, constructed by Maharaja Umaid Singh between 1929 and 1942, leaves one disappointed. True, it has an uncanny resemblance to Taj Mahal and looks majestic on a sprawling elevated area with a wonderfully tended garden. There ends its positive impact on the visitors.... More

A larger part of the museum is used as hotel and a small portion is converted to museum. The outside view of the palace is breath taking with a magnificent view. The museum has good collection of photographs, portraits, artefacts, arms, furniture and crockery of royal family. Museum closes by five in the evening. You can see more than a... More
