Govt. Museum (Alwar)
Housed in the old City Palace, it has a exclusive collection of arms, Bidri work, lacquered and ivory work, musical instruments, stuffed animals, good-looking brass and pottery works from Jaipur, Multan, Bengal and Ceylon, miniature paintings and Persian and Sanskrit manuscripts.
The museum is divided into three major sections, each housed in a big hall. The initial section contains a range of archaeological finds, chiefly sculptures and inscriptions from the region. Items presented by the ruler of the former Alwar state include mounted skins of wild animals like tiger, leopard and lion shot by them throughout their local and foreign excursions.
The second section is the most significant one as it contains a variety of manuscripts in Persian including Gulistan of S'adi as well as marvelous paintings of Mughal and Rajput schools. The paintings have been further divided into various sub-styles.
The third section of the museum contains the armory of state rulers. A variety of kinds of shields, swords, pistols, rifles, daggers and other items are on display.
