  • Pre booking is needed and difficult to get. The entry is free. The museum is great for all textile interested people. The haveli is amazing and the overall tour is of 2.5 hours. It is amazing. Don't miss it.
  • Awesome museum... Complete guided tour pet for that you need to have a booking with the number given and then there are two timings when you can actually go for the tour morning time is the 10:30 to 12:30 and the evening time from 3 to 5 but for that you have to reach there by 2:45. One cannot carry any belongings need to leave each and everything outside the Museum only in your car on your photo no cloth rooms are also believe.
  • Nice museum.. very well guided place... Well maintained.. people are so good.. and it is really good history lesson for anyone who wants to know about textiles in Ahmedabad and India... Great place
  • Great experience visiting this place. But the place is open for only a short interval of time during the day. And make sure to reserve your booking before visiting.
  • If you only have time to cover one attraction in Ahmedabad, this museum should be it (over and above Gandhi's Ashram). It is a private museum and no fee is charged for a comprehensive guided tour by a knowledgeable in-house guide and a very close-up viewing of a magnificent collection (not just religious textiles and costumes, but also other artworks). Totally worth the time. Be sure to book ahead as there is a tour quota each day.
