  • Central Museum is located in a beautiful Palace. Cost 300 rupees within many works of art: paintings, coins, textiles, musical instruments, glassware, weapons. Informative, interesting exposition.

  • The lights are great. Inside it's like any other museum. But the design of the building is good. Reminds me of Victoria memorial. The mummy is underground and fully covered but you can see a bit of skin near feet. It would be hilarious if we can see the uncovered mummy
  • 1. Must visit if you like seeing MUSEUMS. The artifacts on display have been well maintained and arranged in a manner to give you a visual treat. 2. You Must read the history behind the things on display which is written besides each one of them. It is quite interesting. 3. We visited the Museum at night and it was a treat to witness the architecture of the beautiful Albert Hall lit up at night. 4. You will get a good idea of the beauty of Blue pottery of Jaipur before you actually head to a store to buy them.

  • Beautiful building made in year of 1876-86. Elevation/facade of the building is superb. It becomes awesome with illuminating facade lights in night. Best time to visit is in night. Night entry timings start at 7 pm. There are collection of various items in museum but person having interest in archeological items can comment properly on this aspect. Overall it is a must go in night.
  • What a fantastic sight ! The building itself is marvelous and strikes you every time you pass by, especially during the night. I haven't gone inside the museum as I was late for the day, but still had a great time just standing and watching the structure from outside in the evening as the city traffic passed around it. One of the most beautiful structures in India, probably the most beautifully constructed museum in India. There is a lot of space in front of the museum for a handout in the evenings.
