The palace museum has a wonderful collection of exhibits, reflecting the tastes and the personal wealth of the Maharajas of Alwar. There are some excellent manuscripts here including an illustrated Mahabharata on a 200 feet long scroll, made from a single length of paper with writing so tiny that has to be read with the help of a magnifying glass. It also houses other rare manuscripts in Persian, Arabic Urdu and Sanskrit. Gulistan (garden of roses), Bostan (garden of spring) and the Waqiat -i- Babri, are the notables ones. Rajput and Mughal paintings dating back to the 18th and the 19th centuries can be seen too. A rich collection of the armoury is among the other exhibits of the museum.
