  • One of the best fort in Rajasthan, must visit place, looks beautiful in the night also and in a day time no words for this. Superb  more »
  • Luxury is what is written all over this place. The museum takes you to the 19th and 20th century Rajputana and lifestyle of the kings. The palace garage has some interesting vintage cars for the auto ...  more »

  • Definitely a worth to visit. Most of the palace is converted into a five star hotel, where visitors are not allowed. Old vintage classic cars are available on display. Museum is open for visitors from 09:00 to 17:00hrs with a nominal entrance fee. Ample car parking available at a cost. Phtography is allowed inside the museum.
  • The majestic palace will mesmerize you to every level. It's very well maintained and guests are properly treated and welcomed. Though the showcase of vintage cars is not up to the mark. The glasses aren't clear to look across, which ruins the experience. Otherwise it's worth a visit.
  • There is nothing special about this...its right next to the umaid bhawan hotel.. You will get to see a few vintage cars, a few art work, history of jodhpur...paintings...etc.. Well maintained.. Courteous staff.. Only 5-10% of the palace is open for public. The Museum is not very impressive or big but the whole palace in all looks beautiful..
  • The palace is Royal and it also actually feels rich. The museum is also great. The vintage car collection amazing ☺️
  • The only place accessible to commoners unless you want to stay/eat at Umaid Bhavan Palace hotel. This place gives a historical peek into the palace formation and interior decoration. A nice model is an exact replica of the palace itself which adorns the museum. Worth visiting as you can also see the ritual of receiving visitors at the palace. A car museum is also part of this palace housing the Rolls Royce phantom and other vintage cars used by the palace.
