After visiting the sights of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur it was nice to wander through the museum to better understand the evolution of their art and culture. Well worth the expedited 90 minute self guided tour.

Tour guide gave us 2 hours to tour the museum. The artifacts were really well displayed and had great descriptions. The breadth and depth of the exhibits were quite extensive. Well worth the time to spend a few hours here.

Yes. I had no problems with it at all. To protect the items exposed, flashes are not aloud as expected. It is a very nice museum. Enjoy it!
