If you're not interested in textiles or how they make them then this museum is probably not for you. But I loved it! They show some beautiful pieces - both flat and clothing - and they also show you every step of the process so you understand how the fabrics are dyed in multiple steps to create all the colors....

This museum is a relatively short walk through the town of Amer just north of Jaipur and you can do it after visiting Amber Fort. It provides information on different types of block printing techniques and demonstrations make it come alive. The mansion that houses it is very nicely restored. Entry is inexpensive and worth it. The gift shop has... More

We had a lot of difficulty getting a tuk tuk driver that knew where it was located, so beware of that before you jump in one, make sure you have a map handy ! Once we were there it was worth it, a really beautiful old haveli restored and given a much deserved unesco award, aside from the lively architecture... More

For anyone interested in textiles, this museum is a must. So much information and so many exhibits to see, but I recommend that you buy the books to refer to once home, as there is too much to take in on the day. The photographs are detailed and the text informative. I often look through them now I'm home.

As all the other reviewers are saying, it is a beautiful place to see and understand block fabric printing. The craftsmen give nice interesting demos to kids. The multi-colour printing on fabric reminded me of the VLSI chip fabrication process. Apart from the fabric printing, it is interesting to feel the temperature difference inside Haveli. When I entered it, I... More
