The museum contains many items of interest from Alwar's history. However, they are very poorly displayed, many in glass-lidded cases that were fashionable in the 19th century. We rather thought that some of the dust might date from then also... There are very few labels in English, we had to rely on our guide to explain things. Such a pity... More

we sure need to learn our lessons and improve upon our museums and hire professional museum curators to display and lay out our great collections and allow visitors to visit them. the museums need to be privatised to ensure that the great heritage and artifacts can be safeguarded and displayed for the future generations.

Hidden within the City Palace is the Alwar Museum . Its exhibits extravagance of the maharajas’ lifestyle: stunning weapons, stuffed Scottish pheasants, royal ivory slippers, erotic miniatures, royal vestments, a solid silver table, and stone sculptures, such as an 11th-century sculpture of Vishnu. There are also some striking ‘widescreen’ paintings of Imperial processions. it’s on the top floor of the... More
