We have compiled a list of commonly asked questions. Please contact the museum if your queries remain unanswered.
Do I need to book an appointment to visit the museum?
In season, an appointment is not necessary. However, AMHP closes every Monday and on public holidays. If you are travelling with a large group, we advise contacting the museum ahead of time in order to prepare the staff.
Are tours available? Is there a charge?
Depending upon availability, the staff is available for a complimentary tour; however, groups should book in advance if possible. Please inform the guides of any time constraints so they can customise a tour to suit your needs.
Is the shop at the museum an Anokhi shop?
The museum may carry a few items from the Anokhi shop; but, most of the stock is produced specifically for AMHP and is not found elsewhere.
Is there food available at the museum?
The Drinks Kiosk only serves hot & cold beverages in the museum forecourt. It is a serene and picturesque place to relax with a chai after a morning of sightseeing.
Is the museum easy to find?
The municipality prohibits the use of posters and signs, but there is painted signage on the street curbs and walls leading from the bazaar. The lane descending from the back entrance of the Amber Fort connects to this street leading to the museum. See Getting to AMHP.
Most shopkeepers will direct you, but we advise printing out the map below with a photo of the museum. Occasionally a taxi or rickshaw driver will attempt to take you to one of the local emporia. If it doesn’t look like a 400 year old mansion, do NOT be deceived. Show him the photo again – you are not yet at your destination!
