From the outside it looks just like a dated building. Start exploring it and you'll be awed by the rich collection of paintings depicting various cultures right from Roman, Greek, Turk, Egypt, Ramayan, Mahabharat and many other Mythology stories. The amazing collection of ancient coins and painted cards add to the treasure house.

On finishing the tour of Albert Hall I couldn't believe that I had experienced so much of Art and splendour in one hour of my time spent there. Simply amazing!

The building was costructed in 1887 using a blend of English and Indian architecture. The building itself is quite interesting and home to lots of pigeons in the courtyard areas. The building houses lots of artifacts from India as well as other places such as Egypt (including a mummy), It has many displays of tribal dress, sculptures, miniatures, paintings, carpets and musical instruments. The collection is so far reaching that one wonders what will be encountered next. It certainly fills in a couple of hours.

The old and beautiful ,priceless and historical past of jaipur is kept in this hall.whoever goes to jaipur can not ignore its Albert hall museum.it is also a stage for poets,artists,performers.the sword of the kings,the dresses of queens,the jewellery of the royal families and many other collections that tell a story of periodicals of the city of jaipur.

To be honest nothing to write home about, probably a few more things then most museums we visited but in and out in 15 minutes pretty much covered. Certainly a lot more to see in some of the forts then any of the museums we visited.

We drove around this building many times during our excursions out. the building is surrounded by thousands of pigeons, which fly up and come down. the are has lots of activity going on. The building architecture is gorgeous, equal to any place in Europe. You will see the horse buggies here as well.
