The displays are interesting and very well laid out. The building has been restored beautifully, it's peaceful and the locals that carve and print are friendly and informative. Well worth a visit and print your own scarf!

Out front I will state that I love textiles. This museum, the exhibits and the experiences were very informative. The creativity and technical skill was clarified when I was allowed to make a block print. If possible I would love to visit this museum again.

Gorgeous building. A very comprehensive and accessible presentation of different schools of prints with their origins. The kids really enjoyed making their own block prints.

I honestly love this place and it's got a great display of block printing. But there is no AC and if the weather is warm beware, you are required to go up and down several sets of steep steps. It's in a lovely old Haveli...More

I would suggest to call them before visiting. I am not sure if the workshop is at appointment only or only during tourist season.
