the Palace looks huge from out side , but only a portion is open to public. The rest is hotel. It has some nice collections of vintage cars on display at the entrance. Its a 1 hour visit in total, and the place opens only at 9.00 AM.

Rathores have a great history and the museum tells you why, It tells you the Story from Maharaja Umaid Singhji to Maharaja Gajsinghji who is the current His Highness of Jodhpur, It also gives you a great deal of information about the making of the palace and the lifestyle and collections of the Royal Family.
