The Albert Hall Museum, also known as the Government Central Museum, is situated in Ram Niwas Garden in Jaipur and is the oldest museum in Rajasthan. The museum was built in 1876 in honor of Prince Albert Edward, husband of Queen Victoria of Britain, when he visited Jaipur. Albert Hall was initially envisioned as a concert hall. It resembles the architecture of the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The museum is a beautiful example of Indo-Saracenic or Indo-Gothic architecture used by British architects in the 19th century. Sandstone is used to build the elaborately carved arches. The corridors were decorated with murals in various styles from European, Egyptian, Chinese, Greek, and Babylonian civilizations.
