This museum has a little bit of everything: paintings, sculptures, pottery, textiles, weapons, history, religion etc. Still it is not overwhelmingly large, so you can walk through it in about two hours. A great introduction to Indian culture. I really enjoyed it.

This is a great place for the art and books lovers. The place is built during the british era and its the best gift given by them. Though the management is bureaucratic I am hoping to do an event there one day.

The museum houses a large collection of Indian art and history as well as other treasures from elsewhere in Asia. Displayed well and not in the usual 'dusty old style'. Well worth spending time here. the grounds and gardens are also worth a quick stroll....More
