Very Nice Big Museum and also a Art College - Spread over large area - Made through Modern Architecture - I have Seen many MUSEUM - But this stands out as a Compound itself

I was taken to this museum by my Indian host for a lightning tour as we didn't have much time. Starting from the outside there are wonderful Indian statues of their gods and other figures dating back to at least the 2nd century, some in very good condition, some not. Inside there are wonderful items of metalwork, stone, coins, ancient... More

If you are fond of drawing/painting, statues or sculptures, this place is a must visit. It has a pretty good collection of medieval and contemporary art, and also some ancient items.

Boring place if you are not the sort who loves museums and art galleries. Still the collection is worth a visit once. What really strikes you is the classical Indian apathy. You can see a huge number of staff within the museum. They'll be seen gossiping, reading newspapers, playing on their mobile phones. If these people can provide some information... More
