  • The museum was small and informative. We had a private tour guide who explained about haveli's and the restoration of the building. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. But it is in a lovely quiet.....  more

  • So hard to get to (luckily we were warned that taxi drivers don't like to take you here...being ready to get out and walk the 6 min from Amber Palace was helpful!) but so worth the effort! Very interesting museum about the art of hand block printing and an explanation of their work to reinvigorate the craft! They have a wood block carver and a block printer who will give live demonstrations. This is even great for kids!
  • A wonderful place to visit, and a fascinating museum of blockprint textiles in a beautifully restored Haveli. Just enjoy being there, but then study the art, and marvel at the fabrics. Then, on the top floor, see how intricate blocks are made and printed. Delightful! And a great shop too, but don't forget to pause outside and have a delicious chai and biscuits.
