Visit the oldest museum in *The Pink City*
Jaipur – *the pink city* – in Rajasthan is well known for its eminent history, palaces, and incredible architecture. A relatively hot place, and there are particular months which are recommended to visit the city. We visited the city in early February, but it still was pretty hot. We started our journey mid-morning as it was 6-hour drive from Delhi and reached there around early evening.
#Albert Hall Museum
Built-in 1880’s Albert Hall is the oldest museum in Jaipur receiving its name after the King Albert Edward – the Prince of Whales – who visited Jaipur in 1876. The museum started its journey as a temporary museum to now being named as the State Museum of Jaipur which was inaugurated for night tourism in 2015.
The museum holds Indo-Saracenic architecture designed in line as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The exteriors of the museum are decorated with stone ornamentation and built in typical facade structure.
The museum holds more than 10000 collections of ancient India ranging from miniatures paintings, sculptures and wood crafts. Historic art is also held on display here including arms & Armour, ivory work, musical instruments, clocks, marble statues and much more. The museum today has a smaller section for international art collection as well.
