  • If you like textiles, this is a great place. Seeing the history of block printing, and watching artesans continue the tradition by hand, is a lovely experience. The staff are informative, kind, and generous with their time. You can pay to be able to block print a handkerchief of your own. I recommend seeing the fort, coming here, and stopping off at the step well all in the same day as the trip out to this area can take quite a while
  • Here you can get a fantastic demonstration of tissue dying. Everything hand made. You can also create your own scarf or tshirt. Close to the fort and a beautiful stepwell. Stop by if you can
  • Liked the restoration they have done to the building. This museum is not for everyone. You should be interested in traditional weaving, dying and printing on fabrics. Otherwise just skip
  • This interesting museum in a restored haveli documents the art of hand-block printing, from old traditions to contemporary design...you can watch masters carve unbelievably intricate wooden printing blocks and even have a go at printing your own scarf or T-shirt...there’s a cafe and gift shop, too... Entry fees for adult is ₹80 and for child is ₹25...
