We visited the place on Sunday though it was crowded. The place as named is having all ancient collections of dresses and weapons used by rajput kings. Try to explore all floors and understand the sequence among them. Please visit in evening time so that the birds at ground floor will give you a nice experience. As the location is... More

A decent museum in Jaipur, which can be visited as part of the joint ticket available from the Amber Fort. Various weaponry and sculpture displays.

Don't get me wrong, this is a beautiful building and it has so much potential! Unfortunately, as with so many other museums in India it is not being looked after enough. The pieces get lost in the bad lighting conditions. The exhibition could be much better planned and curated. The pieces could be brought to life with just a little... More

Well all museums are same (if you are an idiot). Else this museum is a great place to spend an entire day and get mesmerized with the beauty that lies within. Items ranging from old bayonets to Chinese civilization to Egyptian Mummies, you can find everything

Lots of exhibits, of various categories and from different countries, but nothing interesting at all! City palace has better collection of weaponry and lots of things are in fact replicas (on careful reading of the board under it). Despite being a museum enthusiast, i found it boring when compared to other museums in India. Only thing worth seeing is an... More

I love this building, built by Queen Victoria for Prince Albert's visit, and now converted to an Indian and Rajasthani history museum. If you love beautiful things and learning about the past, its a great destination to check out. I especially loved seeing the birds flying overhead at dusk, truly magical.
