This is the most important museum of the city and also one of the best within the country. If you want to enjoy the best contemporary art, this is no doubt the best you can get. The building that has been transformed into the lovely museum was once the residence of famous kings of Jaipur. The grandeur is still maintained till a certain extent. The maintenance part is worth mentioning and the collection is the best you can find anywhere. Art pieces housed here have a large range of variety. There are pieces that are almost 2 centuries old. There are also art works by English painters and National ones too. The location of the museum is just adjacent to the India Gate, thus making it almost a part of another attraction of National importance. The gardens circling the museums form an ideal place for summer afternoons.
