  • This beautiful place is situated near Ramnivas Garden.. Too much open road circle makes it more beautiful. It looks very attractive from out side.. This place is having too much old paintings,pictures, maps, old time music instruments, old war time weapons and more... In the basement there are mummies placed of Egyptians.. In basement no photography is allowed.. The place is neat and clean form inside and outside both..It looks more beautiful in night time in lighting..
  • Very good place, beautiful from outside. In the basement the Egyptian mummies was really informative to your surprise there is a real mummy in that section, you cannot miss that part. The art work, coin collection, carved antique furniture, weapons were displayed. Very crowded had to stand in an hours line so I would recommend you buy the composite ticket online, it allows you to visit many monuments showing the same ticket.
  • This museum situated near Jaipur zoo. There is a big road circle around it. It has parking. It opens in day and in night after 7 pm too. The museum contains so many things such as old statue, pictures, paintings, duplicate of popular buildings, old musical instruments, it also has pics and many type of items which is being used by different civilizations in the world. The best thing you will find is in the basement a mummy. The mummy is lying on a table in sealed glass. The basement is very clean and calm. Photography is not allowed in this section. They also put x-ray of mummy on the wall. The bones of the mummy looks in very good condition.
  • Its a wow place and u would simply love it if u adore museums or history. Far better than the City Palace galleries. Its a big premise with several floors and rooms, and takes a while to fully explore. photography is allowed.
  • It's very beautiful and knowledgeable. Charges of camera is to high but mobile is allowed. Audio guide is very useful to more in details. Mummy section is below ground floor and at the end of exit point so don't miss it.

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
