Albert Hall Museum - Review
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.

Albert Hall Museum, Jaipur Reviews
The Albert Hall Museum has an excellent collection of utensils, porcelain, weapons, furniture, sculpture, musical instruments, jewellery, coins, fabrics, text and tiles going back hundreds of years. It is a treasure trove for people who wish to have a deep insight into the past. It is amazing to see countless well preserved articles which were evidently in use by the royals. The sprawling building has an Egyptian section in the basement which has a well preserved Egyptian mummy and some artifacts. There is a souvenir shop on the ground floor. The collection is amazing but the place is poorly lit. In full day light the inside is dim lit and some corridors have no light at all. This is the only thing that needs improvement.
If you like museums.. You'll like albert hall. It's one of the most detailed architectural masterpiece.. From outside you can see the small details and when you enter you will see full size shields, some replicas some original pieces of history. From all the great things that this museum contains.. I liked a particular Chess Set (looked like its made of Jade). And it has a Mummy as well . Enjoy.
Lovely Building. Heart of City. Great collection. One great thing is this Museum is open at night apart from day. Night fee is a little higher but worth it. The beautiful building is lit up and it enhances its beauty further more... Heart of Jaipur is it's location. Don't miss the collection...it takes about 2 hours of your time...
It will take around 2-3hrs to fully explore the museum. A lot of traditional stuff also there along with the rich heritage stuff. Do not forget to visit the actual "Mummy" tutu in the basement. Day tickets are cheap(40rs per Indian) and night tickets are expensive (100rs per person). Also, during the night time the museum is lit up on different lights, beautiful to look at. You can take pictures from outside itself. So visit the museum during day hours.
Pride of Jaipur. You can visit it any time in a day but the best time is morning around 6 am or after sunset in the evening. In morning, you will find several pigeons outside it. Looks very good. In late evening hours, it looks beautiful with lights as you can see in the shot I have posted.
