Albert Hall was built by Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh in 1886 as a part of the drought relief project of Rs. 4 Lacs. It is located in Ram Niwas Bagh, a picturesque garden of Jaipur. The building was designed by Sir Swinton Jacob. Nowadays, Albert Hall is being used as a museum displaying a grand collection of metal sculptures, paintings, ivory, carpets, and colourful crystals. A zoo and the Ravindra Rang Manch (theatre) are located nearby. The Albert Hall museum is open to visitors from 9 AM to 5 PM. The entry fee is quite nominal, standing at Rs. 20 for Indians and Rs. 150 for foreign tourists.
