This interesting little museum tells the history of Rajasthan’s princely states and has exhibits on traditional Rajasthani culture. Features include Rajasthani music (with video), textiles, a kaavad mobile temple, and a phad scroll painting depicting the story of the Rajasthani folk hero Pabuji, used by travelling singers as they recite Pabuji’s epic exploits. It also hosts nightly half-hour puppet shows with English commentary. The ticket includes admission to the Jaisalmer Folklore Museum.
