Arrived just before lunchtime and frankly were left to our own devices to explore. No demonstations were going on and no explanations. Was a bit underwhelmed but possibly this was due to the time we arrived.

Loved this place as they have some of the best ethical dress. We were told by our driver that in Jaipur shopping can be risky and if we have some good budget the only buy from showrooms which are govt recognised. So Anokhi Museum is a govt approved plus has won many award. We bought lots of suits from here... More

I loved the excursion into handprints and was amazed by all the designs and everything! I would have loved to stayed longer and admire everything, get a good feel of what I might want to take home but I was put off greatly by the very pushy and forceful host which led me to leave the place without one single...

Hello... so sorry to hear about your experience ... however..... for reading your review it looks like you were taken to some other property and not to the Anokhi Museum..... our museum staff has no incentive to sell anything as they are employees on a fixed salary... and entry to the museum is via a bona fide entry ticket .......

Great museum which will teach you tons about block printing, the history and meaning of each of the print types and the techniques associated with them. Try your hand at block printing yourself! You really will appreciate the skill required to make the fabrics that you will come to love (if you don't already!)

If not anything, just take a tour of the haveli - appreciate the zero energy buildings. And then, you would also see how people are trying to hold on their heritage. We know about some 'long lost' industries which still exist how they have survived all odds for decades.

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.
