about calico museum of textiles

Considered to be one of India’s finest ‘specialised’ destinations, the Calico Museum of Textiles Shahi Bagh was set up in 1949 by the Sarabhai family, the famous business family in Ahmedabad in the glorious setting of their old haveli to document the history of textiles in India. From gorgeous ancient cloth paintings to a stunning 17th century Mughal tent, this museum offers you a lot to explore! 

Dubbed as one of the finest textile museums in the whole world,  Calico Museum of Textiles Shahi Bagh is a must visit. You’ll be spellbound by the artifacts and Indian fabrics that the Calico Museum has up as exhibits. Owing to its foundation in 1949 with the aim of promoting Ahmedabad’s textile industry, it’s the face of the entire industry today.

Confirm your visit in advance as  Calico Museum of Textiles Shahi Bagh authorities allow just 20 visitors in one batch. Moreover, you can enter only 15 minutes before the commencement of the museum tour. Ahmedabad owes much of its popularity as the textile hub of India to Calico Museum, one of the most favoured tourist attraction in the city.
