Started to walk towards Albert Hall Museum . On the way to the museum, there is the Ram Bagh Niwas – one of the oldest park in Rajasthan. It was simple, full of greenery and nothing extra unique over there. Then headed to the museum. It has housed different kinds of artifacts , instruments, historic articles and many more.One very interesting fact is that there is a mummy kept at the basement of the museum. Do watch it!
Taking his advice, I planned up my day for the next set of places to visit. I took up an E-Rickshaw to Albert Hall Museum to finally see the place from inside. I reached there took my tickets and went inside. The place was huge, like magnanimous. It was one of the most beautiful wonders of Jaipur. Intrinsincly carved walls, splendid architecture and beautifully planned, this museum was an Indo - Saracenic form of architecture. I got to know that this famous structure was meant to be the city hall but later one of Jaipur's king Madho Singh made it a museum.The museum is rich in the culture and heritage of the pink city. From sculptures to paintings, from armoury to religious idols, Albert Hall boasts it all. I was engrossed in the variety of artifacts that were in display. From Hindu Gods to Buddhist scuplptures everything looked pure and ancient. Even the view from the windows of the museum was worth photographing.Apart from this, Albert Hall is also the home to over hundreds of pigeons. From roofs to sidewalks, every possible place was crowded with pigeons. It was fun to feed them and to make boomerangs with them.I next walked to Jantar Mantar following Google Maps and to shopkeepers nearby. I was stuck in a residential colony until an old lady shouted at me to take a dark alley. I walked across the dark alley to actually reach there surprisingly! The jantar Mantar was right infront of me with wierd structures and a huge park.
Day 2 : From Movies to Real Life Palaces
As you leave sangneri gate, you see a sawai man singh statue, a left and a black-coloured building could be seen that building is Albert Hall. At that entrance you are welcomed by a sea of pigeons, similar to what you see at the gateway of India, no more similarities could be seen though, Albert Hall is a museum, the oldest one in Rajasthan. The museum represents architecture, it is a model of brilliance used by craftsmen in the olden days for inspiration and improvement in their work.Timings : 9:30 am to 4:30 pmEntry Fee :Indians : ₹5Foreigners : ₹30
Albert Hall Museum or the Central Museum, sited amid the gardens of Ram Niwas Bagh in Jaipur, is one of the oldest museums in the state of Rajasthan. This museum was designed by Colonel Sir Swinton Jacob in 1876 for the purpose of greeting King Edward VII, Prince of Wales on his visit to India.After ten years, it was opened to the public. Since 1969, the galleries on the ground floor of the museum have been thoroughly rebuilt and remodeled. The Albert Hall Museum is modeled on the Albert Museum of London and represents the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture.It was so mesmerising to visit and have a look at the indian architecture with naked eyes.

After seeing Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jantar Mantar we head to see Albert Hall Museum. Due to scorching heat, walking since morning by the time we reached here, our energies were at rock bottom and we decided quickly to see the Museum. Due to the maddening rush it took us good two hours to see the whole of it. It's well maintained and generally isn't crowded on regular days, because it was WORLD TOURISM DAY people were coming in large numbers to see it as entry was free of cost.
Albert Hall Museum :From here I went to Albert Hall Museum, open timing is (9AM-5PM and 7PM-9PM), So check before you reach here. The museum is small but offers an interesting collection including a mummy, old local metal pots, Arms & Armour, Sculptures and traditional Coins, Jewellery, Garments & Textiles. Knowing our ancient culture had always excited me and which place is better than a museum.
4)Albert Hall: A museum made out of white stone, this stands in the middle of a busy street but oddly its serenity blends perfectly with the hustle and bustle of the state capital.Of all the monuments, this one was my favorite, I sat for almost an hour gazing at the purity of this white building, looking at pigeons fly by, even as cars and bikes honked around, one look at the Albert Hall and I was transported to a different era.
1. Albert Hall museum (diverse collection of exhibits, located in the heart of the city, there is a zoo nearby if you have children you may visit that too). There is a CCD and restroom facilities in the premises.I just saw Hawa mahal on the way in auto and chose not to go inside.
Another interesting place to visit is the Albert Hall Museum, which is close by. The palatial building houses many ancient treasures. I was especially taken by the mummy on display.All of these places are situated close to each other, and with a bit of stamina and an early start, can be covered in a day.Day 2:
Albert hall is basically a Museum where you can see Ancient things , Mummy and lot more things
Enjoy when you are here.
The hall is situated in the middle of the city , a huge mansion that is also a museum.
