- Interesting galleries. But I feel that the place has a lot more potential and space, they could do much more. The exhibition that was on when I visited was Vayaan, very well curated. It would be lovely to see many more like that.Written 14 February 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Right next to India Gate, one of the best addresses for the Fine Art.
This place is treasure trove of the Art..
Located in Lutyens's Delhi, which itself is a heritage of Modern India, National Gallery is housed in "Jaipur House", which was the residence in National Capital, for Jaipur Royals, post-independence..
If you love art, just go there you will find enough to keep you occupied for hours (or maybe days) at a stretch .Written 31 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I visited this museum with our group of 10 folks. The museum guide that took us around was very knowledgeable. If you're interested in traditional crafts in India this is the place to go. We also had lunch there (scheduled in advance) and it was delicious. This museum was developed to support improving access to traditional Indian crafts.. as well as support for local artists (it has residencies). A mission to be supported by all. It also was green and wonderfully quiet.. a respite from the hubbub of urban India!Written 28 January 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) is situated on the ground floor of the South Court Mall. There are several other art galleries and stores selling art just around this, but don’t make the mistake of wandering into one of those under the impression that it’s the KNMA. The KNMA lies right at the end of the mall corridor, and there’s a stone-paved stage with the museum logo above it just outside the entrance to the KNMA.
No entry fees is charged for KNMA, but you have to enter your details at the reception counter. From there, you can go on to visit the exhibitions on display. When we visited, two exhibitions were on: one by Atul Dodiya, whose pandemic art (365 paintings in 365 days) was on display; and the other by the very talented K Ramanujam, whose work—mostly from the 1970s—was on display. The number of galleries isn’t big, so it’s easy to see all that’s on display in about an hour, or even less.
Also very interesting, both for adults as well as children, is an interactive touch-screen display of modern Indian art, just opposite the reception counter. This shows thumbnails (relatively speaking) of works by famous artists like Amrita Sher-Gil, MF Husain, Nicholas Roerich, etc. Just tap on an image, and it blows up into a full-size version in the centre of the screen. We had a great time exploring this one; even our eight-year old daughter enjoyed it a lot.Written 1 April 2022
- Had visited this crafts museum in New Delhi a long back ago. This museum is a popular tourist attraction and is visited by tourists.
This museum located at the corner of Pragati Maidan. It is commonly known as National Crafts Museum. This museum houses a village showcasing wooden artifacts, embroidery, artificial jewelry, handicrafts etc. It also has an auditorium, a laboratory, research and documentation facilities etc. This museum is run by the Ministry of Textiles, Government of India. There are various galleries within the museum. It is open from 9.30 am to 5 pm. This museum is closed on Mondays. It is accessible from Pragati Maidan metro railway station. Had admired the different types of handicrafts and observed the Craftsmen creating the beautiful handicrafts as a school going child.
This museum is an ideal place for families as well as school children. It is a must visit place and should not be missed when in New Delhi.Written 10 January 2020
