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. Corruption is everywhere, the authority that takes care of Museum cannot be untouched with that. Overall, Museum has a large collection of architectural stuff that takes us to that era. Rajasthan govt.... More

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.

its housed within the city palace and accessebility is diff since almost 6 floors need to be climed,ruling out the older crowd.It is dusty and very poorly maintained but housed many treasures like miniature paintings,weaponry and arms of ancient Alwar,articles and adornments of ancient rajputs etc.cetainly worth the effort.

The museum is inside the City Palace which is known as "kachehri" amoung the locals, as it houses the Court. One will not be able to find the place easily unless they are with a guide or a local. The entrance to the museum is through the court and its all dirty, stinky and dingy. Once you have entered the... More

The highlight of our visit to Alwar… Amazing value and is a treasure-house of information and knowledge of a time frame across 800-1500 years ago… The museum is full of rare artifacts and royal daily use utensils. The museum is housed in the City Palace of Alwar that was built around 1790s. When you reach there – you will see... More
