like: everything from paintings to arms weapons to the scriptures. dislike: needs some repair and maintenance badly ! there were many artifacts lying outside the musuem which means there is space issue also. over all a wonderful place for history enthusiast.

If you have been to museums in Jaipur then you wouldn't like this place. It resides on the rooftop of the city palace and that's it ! Don't go with high expectations !

I have visited the Museum. I liked the Museum very much, though it is not properly maintained, but I understand it could be due to scarcity of funds.

Museum is housed in city palace which is converted to a government office. The only good stuff is the collection of guns. N guides, 10 Rs per head are the entry charges

Magnificent collection of artifacts. One of the best in Rajasthan, housed in top floor of the City palace which itself is a a great architectural composition. same however cannot be said of the care and maintenance. power supply is erratic, spoiling the experience. Staff is polite but ignorant. On the whole a must visit attraction for heritage lovers.

The collection contains some really great items especially arms and ammunitions. Maintenance is very poor. Lighting is also not proper. Staff does not have much knowledge. Could have been much better.
