What people say

"After the foundation stone of this museum was laid in 1876 to commemorate the visit of the Prince of Wales, there arose confusion about the usage of this hall. Plenty of suggestions came in asking for using this hall for educational or political use, none of which held good! In the year 1880, one of the local surgeons of Jaipur, Dr Thomas Holbein Hendley suggested to the then ruler of Jaipur, Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II to open a museum within this hall. The Maharaja liked this suggestion and thus the Albert Hall Museum took shape. This museum is also home to one of the six โ€˜Egyptian Mummiesโ€™ in India. This Mummy was gifted as a souvenir to the museum by the Brugsch Bey of the Museum of Cairo."
"The Albert Hall Museum is another attraction worth visiting. It is the largest museum in Jaipur and is home to some of the best handwoven tapestries from Persian craftsmen I have ever seen. The Albert Hall Museum visit can take over half a day to visit as it is very huge inside and ensuring you cover every inch of the Museum is essential. It can get busy on the weekends, however weekdays are relatively better especially in the mornings and afternoons. The Museum closes at 6pm hence make sure you reach before it closes."
"This museum extensively displays artworks, paintings, weapons, clothings, old texts from rajputs to mughals to the british era. A great place for history enthusiasts."
