  • This museum is located in the town of Amber, unfortunately few visitors bother to spend a few enchanted hours! First building, old Haveli, restored in the rules of the art and to perfection. A small magic "rose Jaipur"! Then collections, splendid and presented with great taste and pedagogy. Small workshops with artisans sorted on the pane and at the disposal of visitors to interesting explanations. The shop offers a range of objects of very nice quality and finally a nice break in the courtyard. A "neighbour" very interesting, a well in stairs, a more than attractive baouli. To the wise!

  • A must visit to understand the history and techniques of block printing in Jaipur. A moderately big Haveli which has been restored beautifully to facilitate the museum. Though they don't have a guide or a map, the displays are fairly self explanatory. The place gets hot though, so please take enough water. The craftsmen on Level 01 will show you how to carve blocks and print on plain cotton cloth...tip them if you wish to. Their skill is really intricate and tedious. The Museum Shop is small and lacking as compared to the Anokhi shops across the country, but some of the books explaining Block Printing heritage of nearby villages, are very intriguing.
  • Nice experience to understand a so ancient and interesting art as Block printing is! Out of usual tourist's walks.
  • About 20min away from amer fort.. Where one can shop handicraft products . But dont forget to Bergen
  • Anokhi Museum is quite close to Amber fort and is a very popular sopping destination in Pink city. They offer many unique hand made products!
  • Very interesting place
