A very old and prestigious museum of Jaipur, the Albert hall Museum is a wonderful place to visit. It is named in honour of King Albert Edward VII of England due to the fact that it was he who had inaugurated it. It lies beyond the original walled city. Builtby Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob it was inaugurated sometime in the late 19th century.
Maharaja Ram Singh wanted the building to be a town hall; however, the next king- Maharaja Madho Singh II let it remain a museum. Jaipur’s amazing cultural heritage finds a home in this museum. The most impressive objects on display are the artefacts and oil paintings, water colour portraits and landscapes along with several articles made of ivory and stone, along with mesmerizing crystal artistry and metal sculptures.
The fusion of the Indo-Saracenic culture is definitely worth admiring, making this museum quite an important monument to view as well.

A great museum with an awesome location even opened at night. Great collection of the army... Period things and much more.... .. it's beautiful to watch from outside... Lighting will be on and it's a very beautiful scene as well. The good place to visit.
_Jaipur's cultural beauty is well expressed in architecture and art forms. One of the best ways to enjoy the culture is museum. The best of all museums is Albert Hall Museum. This museum provides exclusive collection of artifacts, objects and other art forms. At night, it's a completely different place, it's all lit up and looks awesome. My suggestion go to the museum just before dusk, so you can see the museum from the inside, and while going out you can admire the lighting.....
Experience of Albert Hall was quite different. As on ground floor, you can see pots and carpets and other crockery items as well as some decorations item from different countries. On 1st floor there are so much more like old currency, weapons, armour, cloths, music instruments and so much more. While underground was one of the must visit place. They have mummy there. After that puppet show was awesome. That's it.
I will try to keep it short, but forgive me if I fail in the endeavour. Albert Hall is a museum that showcases the history of mankind in a nutshell. The pottery in the beginning is so enchanting. And the curators made a wonderful job of accumulating the history of different places. After the huge collection of pottery comes the weapon section. There are two stories of history laden content in the museum which can't be completed on a single day by any art lover. Albert museum is a convergence of history of mankind.
This is by far the best museum I have ever visited and there is a reason for that. The reason is, first, this place (Albert hall) is in the heart of the city unlike other museums you don't have to drive a long way to pay a visit here; second, this place offers a variety of things ranging from ancient(mummies from Egypt) to the medieval period and even to British India. Such a versatile collection of artefacts is rarely seen in India. It tells a lot of stories and is quite informative with respect to other museums. I seriously recommend this place to people who are visiting India for the first time and for the locals it is always a treat for the eyes to visit a beautiful museum. Loved it.
