    One of few attractions in Jodhpur.
    The palace is one of the only few tourist attractions of Jodhpur. It's divided into 3 parts as a museum, kings palace and hotel. It's not a old palace, as made very recently. Usually the organise luxury weddings here. You can only access the museum as a tourist which is just a third part of the whole palace. The displays and architecture are beautiful. The garage with vintage cars would be the thing to add and one should definitely see.

    Amazing
    Nice place to walk around. They have a good collection of artifacts. However, I would recommend a guide. They have a room dedicated to clocks and this is something really fascinating. You will be amazed to see the vast collection and some even working till date. You can read some of the history text and walk around the courtyard area. They also have a very good vintage car collection before exiting, which should not be missed if you are an enthusiast.

    Exhibiting antiques belonging to the maharajas
    A small portion of majestic Umaid Bhawan Palace Jodhpur is turned into a museum, while other major parts have been turned into Luxurious Hotel and residence of royal family. Interestingly, the current royal family of Jodhpur still lives in the palace. Barring museum section, entry to other sections is barred for general tourists. There is an entry fee of Rs. 60 per pax for museum. The museum is well maintained and displays the antiques belonging to the maharajas and the royal family that includes cutleries. paintings, arms and ammunition etc. The complex also displays collection of vintage cars. The place also offers a closer view of the grand Umaid Bhawan Palace. At the entry point, small eateries are available for quick refreshments. A trip to the palace museum may be made to view the olden days o the maharajas and closure look at Umaid Bhawan.

    Worth a quick look
    Interesting to learn about the history of the palace and the people who built it and lived in it. Only 200inr per person for foreigners. You can only visit the museum and not the main hotel area. The gardens are immaculately maintained. Worth a quick visit.

Umaid Bhawan Museum is a treasure trove of history and culture, housed in one of the world's largest private residences. Its combination of architectural splendor, historical artifacts, and royal memorabilia makes it a must-visit attraction in Jodhpur

The building is very good from outside. Most of the portion is occupied by Taj hotel where visiting is prohibited. Collection is very average.

Don't ever go there, I repeat don't ever go there !!
Wasted 1 hour of my life that I would never get back.
20 minutes away from the city, 200 roupies (around 2 euros) to enter, I know it's not too much but I would rather throw 2 euros in a garbage bin than give it to them.
The palace is huge but you can only visit 2 rooms thay look like any big room in any house full of pictures of the maharaja and his belongings (basically swords and clocks).
You are not allowed to visit any other part of the palace, not even the Gardens.
I still wonder what the palace looks like as we saw nothing of it.
Please don't waste your time here, and do any other activity in Jodhpur instead (e.g the fort, the stepwell, the old city, bishnoi villages )
