Close to Amer fort but far from the maddening crowds is this wonderful museum in a beautifully restored Haveli. It is feast for the eyes & also lots of fun, especially watching the master carver prepare the blocks used for the printing, and the printers themselves who will make a handkerchief for you for nothing. The gift shop offers several... More

We went to anockhi museum after our visit to Amber fort as it is a 5min drive from there. Defiantly tell your driver exactly where you want to go- they will try to steer your away. We got there before a large group came and luckily had the place to ourselves. They have a small museum you can explore on... More

A must visit if you are interested in arts and a bit of history as well....The local guides wont want to take you there unless you insist and persist . A restored 16th century haveli with small simple galleries that just explain how the various patterns and colours are created . On the top floor, you can see Majeed-ullah showing... More

It seems that although Trip Advisor said it was open last Monday we hired a driver to take us out there, (an hours drive) only to find it closed. And they posted a sign that it was closed the next day National day. It looked amazing through the locked gates... Not amused. Understand it is very worth the trip!

When I said to my guide I wanted to go here, he got quite upset and said "The English seem to like it". He had plans for a visit to his "friends" Hand Printing Factory !! Small simple galleries that just explain how the various patterns and colours are created with some lovely examples. If you are lucky on the... More

If you would like to learn a little more about block printing and Indian fashion, then this place is amazing. First, the location is near by the Amer Fort in a little historic neighborhood, so try to include this in your visit to the fort and save a few minutes to walk around the neighborhood too. Second, this place is... More

Great museum for the price. I found it very informative and learned so much about block printing. We also got a little lesson and watched them make the blocks. Such a cool experience, but be prepared to tip the artisans. It is totally worth it to tip them as they gave me one of the blocks that they made right... More

The Anokhi museum was a great way to get some history and insight into the art of block printing in a distinctly non-touristy way. The beautiful location is built into a renovated building adjacent to the old fort wall, and inside features a varied selection of regional styles. An interactive demonstration in wooden block carving and block printing with local... More
