Prachina Cultural Centre & Museum information
The museum, across the fort’s main courtyard from the palace entrance, is fascinating and well labelled. It focuses on the Western influence on the Bikaner royals before Independence, including crockery from England and France and menu cards from 1936, as well as some exquisite costumes, jewellery and textiles, and intriguing everyday ephemera. There are also exhibits on contemporary Bikaner crafts.
