Museum shows the tradition and types of clothes royal family used to wear. It gives you lots of knowledge about their traditions, interests, tastes etc. Overall a gud museum to visit.

This is a doubled up listing with Jaipur City Palace, under its commercial name. There are a number of buildings you can enter, no photos allowed in most of them. The Armoury, textile gallery, durbar hall and coach museum. You can hire audio guides and there is an extended Royal Grandeur tour which takes you into previously off limit areas... More

This place has a really good architecture and worth a visit. It screams history and the museum is really good with all the artifacts. The paintings are worth looking at and one gets to see royalty up close. A must visit for history buffs.

Another tourist attraction that yells for attenton and good up-keep. We visited this place 9 years back too, and recalled fond memories, but this time round, things weren't the same. It seemed that upkeep of the place has been compromised upon heavily.

This place is best known for its architecture and buildings. There is some good pictures and exhibits to document and show of the history of this Maharaja. Most things are in good shape and not run down.

A Must see palace if you are plannng your trip to Jaipur. I would say that ths is the only palace in Jaipur that is so much maintained. The king of this palace - Maharaja - ManSingh II is still alive. The designing on the walls are the beauty of this palace. This palace is not converted into museum. I... More

I actually enjoyed this far more than the review suggests - but to be fair it's no Louvre or London National Gallery. The art, textiles, paintings and weaponry put the palace into perspective and you should not miss the museum just for this reason.
