World Famous Albert Hall Museum, Jaipur (Pinkcity) Rajasthan

Indian tourist place that I’m sure would delight you with its amazing collection of ancient stuff. Yep, like the title says, my today’s topic of expression is the ‘Albert Hall Museum‘, one of the best architectural beauties located in the heart of city, Jaipur.

Designed by Samuel Swinton Jacob, it was opened for public back in 1887 and perhaps this the valid reason why it is one of the oldest museums in the state of Rajasthan. Not to forget, this atavistic building was named after King Albert Edward VII who laid its foundation stone in 1876.

You can visit Albert Hall Museum during the weekdays and believe me it is not at all expensive. The best part is that you can visit it for free on the below-given dates and occasions:

  • 30th MarchRajasthan Day
  • 18th AprilWorld Heritage Day
  • 18th MayWorld Museum Day
  • 27th SeptemberWorld Tourism Day

 

Apart from the above mentioned special occasions, the Albert Hall Museum is opened for the tourists during all the weekdays and you can visit it in between 9 am to 5 pm & 7 pm to 10 pm. However, it remains closed on the following scheduled days:

  • Dhulandi (Holi Festival) – A respective date in the month of March as per Indian calendar 
  • Maintenance Day – April to September (Every Monday)
  • Maintenance Day – October to March (Every last Tuesday of the month)
