Beautiful building with an amazing array of artefacts. There is even a mummy! Lots of beautiful artworks, miniatures, tapestries and antiques. All laid out wonderfully in this remarkable building. An ideal place for an overseas traveller to get some perspective on Indian history and culture.

Very nice architecture in middle of city and surrounded by nice gardens and the barandas. Good collections of art effects and things well preserved. The painting depicting stories on the museum first floor, the metallic utensils and other items of interest.

Its a great museum, and you can find lots of antique sculptures and articles at the museum, the museum is quite big and looks like a palace in itself. It is also centrally located and easy to reach.

Lovely Museum.This was my first attraction in Jaipur. Very nice museum where you feel close to history. Well maintained and all details mentioned. Location in heart of city and close to city palace/Hawa Mahal/ Jantar Manatr. Auto charge around 30-40 and rickshaw charges 30 for City Palace from here.

This is located on M I Road in Jaipur which is a major shopping area in jaipur. It is situated at Ajmeri gate and near Ram Niwas Garden. The museum is good and also there is a very big garden near this and also Jaipur Zoo is nearby so many things near the location. A nice picnic can be done.
