This beautifully housed and presented museum is very convenient to visit before or after the Amber Fort. Our guide was reluctant to make the small detour and didn't really get why we wanted to visit, intimating that it wasn't the real thing but in fact it absolutely is! There are low key demonstrations (and longer workshops too) where you can... More

An inspiring experience in a stunning location, go with time to make your own block print scarf. Also try to find the Anokhi retail HQ in Jaipur for lots of beautifil block print apparel and gifts for loved ones with a love of art.

Set in a beautifully restored haveli, you will learn all about the amazing craftsmanship and time that goes into the production of each fabric. We also learned through our thorough tour about the different villages, the style of the fabric from each and how some designs symbolize things like married or widowed woman. There is a small cafe and gift... More

We visited after being recommended to go. The Museum is well laid out and has a lot of information regarding the hand printing. It was great to see some cloth being hand printed as well as the printing blocks being carved. This is a must see when in Jaipur.

We visited this place when we went the nearby step well and loved this renovated haveli which functions as a museum for block printing. There is an artisan in one of the floors who demonstrates the art as well. The beautiful fabrics and the blocks are also good draws. It is good to take some time and vsiit if you... More

Lovely old haveli restored and turned into a peaceful and welcoming museum of block printing. Having been a huge fan of Anokhi for many years this was a highlight of my visit to Rajisthan. Loved seeing all the beautiful fabrics and intricately carved blocks. The shop is small but tempting and the organic cafe has the best coffee! The main... More

This is something watchable, a very special Rajasthani (Jaipuri) printing process. But, the people around there aren't very courteous, and sober.

A beautiful restored house very lovingly housing a museum & excellent Organic cafe. Well worth the trip if you are near Amber Fort. The house was more interesting to me than the exhibition but it is well presented.

A great little museum that's worth the effort to find before you travel up the hill to The Amber Fort - take an Indian helicopter if you're unsure of the walk up to it.
