I went there with my kids. The haveli was a wonderful place with pigeons flying i, . Kids thought it was cool. They got to try their hand with block printing.I read about the museum on tripadvisor and went there. It was quite a surprise. We enjoyed our visit there. The museum is in a beautifu old house. It is really worth a visit. The small shop in the museum has beautiful blockprinted items.

What a lovely museum to visit- so interesting to see how the block printing is done. We even had our own one made for each of us and also had a go a doing some printing ourselves. The shop us quite shall, but still good and the cafe was closed but could have been out of season.

Tucked away in a quiet area of Amber, this delightful museum is a treat.The museum is in a beautiful old house. It is really worth a visit. The small shop in the museum has beautiful blockprinted items.The exhibits are interesting although they are displayed over several floors - the steep steps to each floor is not for the faint hearted! The display is interesting, with some lovely old fabrics, and there are demonstrations of dyeing and wooden block making. We had the place more or less to ourselves! Overall a great experience one should be glad to have!

An interesting exhibition of the skills of hand printing

This little museum is tucked away in the village of Amer. Despite being a little run-down, the museum repays the small entrance fee and the time taken to visit. Techniques employed to produce the intricate, delicate prints and colours of the beautiful designs typical of this area of Rajesthan are demonstrated in a series of display cabinets sited in various rooms which also currently provide cool respite from the furnace heat outside. When we were there (on a Sunday in May) the hand block printing was not being demonstrated, but in another room a skilled craftsman was drilling tiny flower designs into blocks of wood and presented these to us to take away as treasured mementoes of our visit. A small shop sells beautiful designs of wood-block printed cards and papers and it was good to pay the small costs involved in hope that these might help preserve the lovely old building and its exhibitions. We were very fortunate in visiting just before the museum would close for a few months of full summer break!
