I would agree with what others have said. The building is spectacular, but only a small part which houses the museum is open to the public so it's a long way to go for just a short visit. Car buffs may like the old cars on display in the yard. The gardens are well maintained and nice to sit in... More

worth seeing Royal family culture , articles, historical items, Don't miss the Vintage car collection just opposite to the Ticket counter. Entry fee is ok . you have to get an auto or taxi as you don't get any transport over there. If you visit Jodhpur one of the must visit place.

Artifacts do not really have anything differentiating them from other palace museums. Its worth visit because it is more of a modern fort.

The museum had lots of interesting items, the car collection was fabulous, and the paintings of the Royal family thru the years I particularly liked, and the Royal Family still live next-door to the museum in their special apartments.

this museum palace is grande, so nicely maintained, for 60 rupees a ticket which is less than 1 euro to a museum cum palace. i liked sitting in the garden and having a coffee there. the people visiting were friendly and non disturbing as in other cities so was nice to relax in the sunny gardens.

The Umaid Palace is one of the world's largest private residences. A part of the palace has been converted to a hotel and is managed by Taj Hotels. This was constructed to provide employment to the locals during the famine. Frankly the charm of the building is from the outside. The imposing facade is visible from almost anywhere in Jodhpur....
