A very nice museum. Hand printing can be so nice, never thought about it. You must go to see this place as Hand printing is vanishing from India. A must go place when in jaipur

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the region. Quiet and peaceful and the fabric collection is a lovely display. The best part is the practical demonstrations of block printing - great to watch and see the colours come alive.

We did not get to see live hand block printing. It was informative to read about the textile making process, but there is nothing special about this place. The museum shop was extremely overpriced.

There is a lovely little man sat cross legged... More

Guides may take you here for their tips and commisions if you buy anything from here. This place is not recommended for shopping as prices are too high which you can get in Bapu Bazar etc. However one can see the hand printing technique which is shown for a minute. See it if you are interested in hand printing technique... More
