The Maharaj did this, the Maharaj did that and look, the Maharaj even made a palace to help the people

Okay let me go with the positives first. Terrific job preserving the palace, the artefacts etc. Great antique cars (Rolls Royce et al). And well done with the curation of a museum... read more

Okay let me go with the positives first. Terrific job preserving the palace, the artefacts etc. Great antique cars (Rolls Royce et al). And well done with the curation of a museum with pics and stories. Its definitely worth a visit to see to most royal of palaces in India. But c'mon. A little less flattery of the Maharaja perhaps?...

Best was the Vintage Car collection. The Palace itself is so beautiful that you start realizing the richness of India and why it was called as Golden Bird !!!!

This museum is very average compare other museum around India or even around the world. There isn't much exhibit in the museum and most exhibits are mediocre.

Awesome & Marvelous Umaid Bhavan Palace is a delight to one's eyes. The Museum throws complete insight in to The History of this Monument and Royalty of HM Maharaja Gaj Singh. 347 Rooms of Sheer Opulence & Luxury gives a stunning view from Vintage Car Collection section (A must visit). A visit here definitely makes you yearn to come again... More

Beautiful palace...There are few places one can experience the royalty of Rajputana. This is the one that tops the list. Well crafted and well maintained. The exotic destination for theme wedding and glamour royal weddings. and Museum is also good.

Museum has become very small after the Hotel was taken over by Taj Group of hotels. Main attraction was that one could go upto central dome area and see the architecture very closely. Now very few rooms are kept for Museum ,but the charm is to see Palace from very close distance. Hotel portion can be entered by paying cover... More

Visited on last evening of our 5 night stay in Jodhpur and this place was a brilliant finale. The greeting staff were most helpful of our friend who was in a wheelchair. The dining room was spectacular and the menu was quite extensive, catering for Indian and also a separate continental menu. The meals were impressive and the highlight for... More

Nothing inside the museum except paeans to royal family through photographs. Vintage car collection outside the palace is quite enchanting, though
