The museum building is a fine work of architecture. It was built by the maharaja of Jaipur. It has pictures of all the kings of Jaipur. They have an Egyptian mummy on display, ancient coins and many other artifacts collection of paintings, sculptures of ivory, stone and metal. It is worth visiting this museum.

Museum endowed by Prince Albert houses a collection of textiles, ceramics and metal work. A miniature V&A! Most of the visitors were Indian, no tours on the day we visited.

Really a very good Museum. Contains old war artefacts, coins, an old Egyptian mummy, paintings. Should have been named after one of the Jaipur kings instead of Albert.
