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

Must go to place for all those who appreciate hand made and hand printed fabrics from across the country. Experience of printing your own napkin or stole is a life long memory. Amazing store at the muesum. Take time and go.

The display of various fabrics and clothing is one of the highlights. They are of very high quality. There is a small retail shop with high-quality clothing and various items made from... More
