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.

First challenge is crossing the road to get here followed by finding the entrance which is not through the front but around to the left. When I reached the ticket box a guy approached me to tell me that today the museum is free. Immediately my suspicion radar goes off as nothing in India is ever 'free'. Turns out it was for whatever reason though the entry fee isn't much anyway. Audio guides are available but I I didn't bother. To be honest I found it largely quite dull. The building itself is more interesting than the contents which is mostly pottery, plates, vases, tapestries, drawings and sculptures. The only parts that I found interesting were some old weapons and musical instruments. There's a small Egyptian section near the end. The police/guards who spend most of their time half asleep suddenly spring to life and get very stroppy if you don't follow the proper pathway through. All up I spent 40 minutes here, I wouldn't bother unless you've run out of things to do.
Find lots of epic things which are the symbols of Indian art and work . Coins collection is too good . Cloth and other hand work of past era is too attractive. Old and epic things are there to give much info about past era. Mummy house is too good to watch , old tricks to keep dead body safe is nice.
Nice museum with decent facts about most pieces. I was happy to pay the 100 rupees entry for the night time visit (19:00-22:00) Best part may have been the building itself though.
Good museum to walk around. Not too big or small. Just perfect to hold your interest and not bore you or tire you.
It's just superb place. Rajasthan, as a whole, especially Jaipur is wonderful place! The state gives so much importance to tourism, and it was a wonderful experience for me. The Albert Hall museum is lit at night, which itself is very beautiful from outside.
