Nice museum. The puppet show and the folk dance in the evening is extraordinary.
Introduction of Jaisalmer Folklore Museum Jaisalmer Folklore Museum is situated on the banks of Garsisar Lake in the Mehar Bagh Garden, this museum was founded in the year 1984. There is a wide variety of artifacts inside the museum which offers a great experience to the visitors. Visitors will get a detailed idea about the various significant historical events on visiting the museum.
Finally a museum that shares the story of who and why Rajasthan was founded in the very beginning. The museum charges nothing extra to foreigners or Indians alike but the man who owns/maintains the facility has no support from the government. As a result the displays are dated and require a lot of reading. This is not a "ooo look! A buddha statue! Let me take a quick selfie and move on!" kind of museum. Every peice has full descriptions to its importance in Hindi and English. I cannot say how refreshing it was to go here after so many religious museums in this part of the world.
Nothing great. Costly ticket at 100 pp. Very reparative..Display.. could not see but heard good puppet shows in evening
