    Fascinating textile printing museum
    After enjoying Amer Palace and the a wander along to the Panna Meena Ka Kund step well, we sauntered another 3 minutes down the road to the Anokhi Museum. It's fascinating to view as a refurbished haveli but the real reason to go is the wealth of information on textile block printing. If you're the least bit into textiles or arts and crafts, it's a 'must see'. There are also demonstrations of block carving and block printing, plus a great little shop. Finally, why not just go for the cafe: menu options are limited but the coffee was decent and it was a good place to rest.

    Handblock Museum near Jaipur
    A gem hidden in the village of Amer not far from the fort. Would be a miss to not make the effort if close by. So much history, and beautiful exhibits in a restored building. When we were there, there were two craftsmen showing their work.

    Gorgeous restored house and great showcase
    Don't miss this museum after visiting Amber fort and the step well as it is nearby. The old haveli was beautifully restored and the showcase of wood printing was amazing. A must see and it is so peaceful too.

Must visit with kids. Don't miss live demonstration of block making and hand printing by exceptional artists. They demonstrated the art of hand printing very patiently.

Set in Amer just next to the Kheri Gate on the way to the Amer Fort, this place is a treat for anyone interested in the Rich Rajasthani art of Block printing.

While we were conversant with printing techniques like Sanghaneri and Bhagru this place had a lot more to offer. It is set in an old bunglow and has rooms dedicated to each of the printing techniques.

There is a master ji who taught us how to do a block print. My younger daughter thoroughly enjoyed it. There is an artisan who showed us how to carve a block. The entry fee is just Rs.40 for an adult and there is a donation box in case one wants to donate. The most striking thing about this museum is the peace and quiet of this place. It has several rooms, niches and stairs which make the place intriguing. Its a must vist for anyone visiting Amer which is about 16 kms from the airport. This area is avoidable during the 26th of Dec to 7th of Jan due to the huge influx of tourists from Delhi. There is a small anokhi store which sells some garments and gifting ideas in block print. One can buy a bag or a tshirt in white and try printing the same in block prints. The evolution of a grey fabric through the indigo dyeing process with a print are one of the many exhibits that one can see. The overall experience is enriching

Not necessarily my thing, but my wife and her friend LOVED this museum. I didn't find it intolerable, it was quite interesting. It's nice that they have little interactive places to try your own hand at blockprint.

this place has a entry fee of INR 50/- per person
the 4 story place is very well appointed with the Rajasthani graft sector work and spreading awareness of the same among the visitors and tourists.

The displays are very well placed with information boards providing all necessary details of the craft and the processes involved thus being of educational importance as well.

Activities like block making, block printing are included in the visit experience with a little extra cost added

Great exposure for students and youngsters to value rich Indian cuture and appreciating craft.

I do recommend a visit to tihs place for young people, however, families with children and senior citizen may decide to avoid this place as no lift and high stairs will make movement difficult.

Lovely little museum neart the Amer fort - set in a gorgeous restored Haveli. The exhibits are fascinating. And the top floor where you can try some block printing on cloth with some guidance is a lot of fun! Don't miss the shop, it has more interesting things ( albeit more expensive) than the regular Anokhi shop. Well worth a visit.
