“Oh dear, the last duster left with the Raj”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

This was by far the biggest disappointment I have met in Jaipur. A mish-mash of history with no formal structure. Exhibits in cases that can't be seen into because of reflections/ Inside the exhibits are dirty.
If you've ever been to the Cairo Museum and thought that was bad - well you are in for a shock
There were no guide books available when I was there and I couldn't wait to find the exit.
One upside is you can get some nice ice cream outside for only 20 rupees

“Very old India”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

The mood at this place reminds me of the India of 30 years ago. The place is architecturally impressive, but the people in ticket line are pushy, the art is displayed hapharzardly without much explanation, and there is no A/C inside. However, it's worth seeing if you have extra time in Jaipur.

“Amazing Architecture, Bleh Museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

The building looks amazing from outside, but the museum inside isn't very well-maintained. It seems repetitive if you've already visited the City Palace Museum.

My advice would be to skip the museum bit. Just settle yourself on one of the seats in the outside corridor to admire the architecture. You can also feed the thousands of pigeons outside, or just take pictures as they flock around in scary patterns.

“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Nice small museum with a real mummy preserved.
Feed pigeons in the front of the hall.
Do visit the zoo and bird house nearby, within walkin distance.
