This Rajasthan museum is tucked away delicately behind the imposing Hawa Mahal in Jaipur in the Partap Mandir that adjoins it. Built in 1983, it houses some intricate sculptures of the bygone era, various types of antiquities, swords, helmets, arrow heads, fish hooks, and an assortment of personal belongings owned by the former rulers of Jaipur. In many ways it is an archaeological museum and this fact is underscored by its main attraction, which is a big storage vessel that dates back to the 2nd Century. It was found in an archaeological dig at Naliasar in Sambhar.
