“very good”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Even though you don't get to see the whole palace as most of it is converted into hotel and residential palace of whatever remains of the royal family. It is still worth a shot, lots of history. Amazing views of Lake Pichola and Udaipur city.

“Normal Museum”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

You have not to take nay extra ticket (Other then City Palace ticket) to visit it. It's a Part of City Palace. If you have visited museum of any other fort then you will not find any new thing there.

Their Jewellery Gallery is amazing. You can say it's a must see place. Be careful about it. It's a side by place and it's quite possible you can miss it.

“Just another palace-museum”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We visited the palace after the prince's wedding and could see the aftermath of the grand celebration that was held here.

The palace is majestic and huge, spread across a vast area. Its a sight to behold. However, in terms of exploration, only a side-wing of the palace is made available to tourist with an array of antiques and photos at display. Nothing that stands out in contrast to other palaces in Rajasthan.

“Average museum with an exhorbitant entry fee”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

There are some good collection of paintings. So, if you are interested in this, pay a visit. But, the palace itself felt too plain and uninspiring as a king's abode. Definitely not worth the huge entrance price.

The toilet facilities are in no way usable. There are a number of stairs to go up and down - all to visit similar looking rooms.

Expect to get a view of the palace grounds below unless it is covered for some wedding event or the other. I was definitely not amused.
