Also known as the Central museum, the Albert Hall museum lies within the environs of the Ram Niwas Gardens in Jaipur. The garden also houses a zoo, an aviary, a sports ground, and a greenhouse.
The Gardens were commissioned by Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II as a part of a relief project in 1868. The Albert Hall museum is one of the few monuments in Rajasthan that have an Anglo-Indian style of architecture. It is modelled on the Victoria and Albert museum in London.
Devised, designed, and conceptualized by Colonel Sir Samuel Swinton Jacob, the Albert Hall museum, Jaipur houses a treasure trove of objects and artefacts that span the long history of Rajasthan. Various facets of Rajasthan's art and culture are proudly displayed in the museum.
