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.

This is an excellent way to understand the history right up to the present of block printing textiles. The four books that they sell in their gift shop include everything you see on the English print-ups by each exhibit. You get to see block printing being done. They have a lovely courtyard to eat in where we watched monkeys in... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a couple of hours here. It was so lovely to learn about the process of printing and the history and stories behind the various patterns. All the more important when you learn some of the patterns and techniques are in danger of dying out. I got to try my hand at printing which was good fun. The shop... More

Great reviews but not as per the reviews unless we went at the wrong time. Poorly maintained, pigeons flying in and out make the experience a little more scary.

This place is definite visit for education; infact was an eye popper for us on how painstaking it’s to make blockprinted clothes. Its adjacent to amber fort and is a restored haveli converted into a museum having huge array of colourful block prints. They have a people who especially demonstrate both block making and printing. You can also see variety... More
