Umaid Bhawan Palace Museum is fully dedicated to the history of Umaid Bhawan Palace. It showcases pictures of the palace, taken at different points of time and retells the story of how Maharaja Umaid Singh was keen on Western architecture and appointed a well-known Edwardian architect to create this palace in the Art-Deco style. A very unique antique clock collection and a huge banner presented by Queen Victoria hold special interests for the tourists. There are many more interesting artefacts belonging to the royals, ranging from cutleries, trophies and weapons. And of course, don’t forget to check out Maharaja’s vintage car collection! There is a small souvenir shop outside the museum where you can get some interesting stuff to take back home.

Probably the only downside is that visitors are not allowed to venture into the other areas of the beautifully created palace, which are only open for the Jodhpur royalty as well as the guests who choose to stay here.
