The restored haveli mansion that the museum is housed in is about worth a visit on its own. On a 110 degree day outside it was remarkable how cool the interior of the haveli was due to the think cement walls and strategically placed windows. The textiles and apparel throughout the museum is impressive as is seeing the blocks being... More

A hidden gem in Amer. Happy to have visited this museum. Everything was so clearly explained and the demonstrations of making the blocks and printing on fabric are a big plus on the total experience! Also contemporary art is showed, making this traditional craft very alive!

I would highly recommend a trip to this beautifully restored haveli where you can watch a true craftsman carve a wooden block before observing the printer use a series of blocks to make a multi coloured pattern.

Loved our visit here and spent over an hour exploring all this heritage haveli has to offer. The haveli itself is beautiful and has been restored with traditional methods which are explained within the museum. It is remarkably cool in comparison to the outdoor heat. The exhibitions are well curated and incredibly educational - providing interesting background to the crafts... More
