The place was great because of all the valuable and handicrafts we got to see inside. The place is in Jaipur which we visited and hence got the chance to experience this textile heaven. Great Art.

In the season, that is. The museum is housed in a renovated building and its textiles are well displayed. Out-of-season, parts are closed and local artists are not present. The nearby step well is well worth visiting.

Definitely worth a visit. The meandering walk past old houses was delightful, try to see the fabulous step well on the right hand side when heading towards the museum. The building the museum is in has been beautifully restored, and has a serene atmosphere. The aim of the Anokhi group is to preserve and promote the heritage of block printing - a worthy venture. Visitors are able to try block printing, and I still have a piece of cloth which I helped to print, good fun. The written explanations of the exhibited pieces are informative and well-written. There is a little shop selling items made of printed fabrics, there are a few Anokhi shops over Rajasthan and India, they are a little pricey, but top quality, and will last for years and years. The toilet was clean and pretty (!!!!) and there was a little cafe out the front selling chai and home-made biscuits. Very well worth a visit.

This is a quaint museum which was shut for maintenance but there was a wood block maker on the premises who did a live demonstration of carving a small wooden block for my kids each. It was a delightful experience for them to watch the traditional carver make a beautiful block out of a piece of wood.

Its a very quiet museum perhaps not on the tourist map.
We learnt so much about fabrics and block printing at this place. The staff is patient and will take you through the tour without the typical tourist traps.
One can feel relaxed and remain unguarded at this wonderful place.
