Albert Hall Museum, JaipurAlbert Hall is the oldest museum in the state of Rajasthan. Designed by Colonel Sir Swinton Jacob in 1876, it was created in time to greet King Edward VII as Prince of Wales on his visit to India and opened to public ten years later. Situated in the gardens of lovely Ram Niwas Bagh in Jaipur, this museum has an exceptional collection of rare articles on display that include textiles, carpets, paintings, metal and wood crafts, pottery, arms and weapons, flora and fauna, toys, dolls and even an Egyptian Mummy from the Ptolemaic era. The famous carpet displaying the scene of a Persian garden with running water streams is also in this museum.
