The outside display of village houses completely lacked information about different styles of building - a sadly missed opportunity. It is...More

the textiles on display are truly awestriking - the restof the stalls/huts are very disappointing & in dire need of a little TLC (which I believe is happening). Murals on all the walls are really interesting if you take a few minutes to pay attention.

We booked a guided tour at the museum, and because we’re interested in textiles, we asked the guide to start with that section. We’ll, we didn’t get to the rest of the museum; their textile collection is that good, if a little under-curated. There also...More

Quite disappointing. I really love ethnic and traditional arts — carving, baskets, textiles, pottery, etc. — but this place needs a lot of work. The so-called village of traditional houses from many far-flung areas of India is dusty, old, and neglected. The area of stalls...More
