I learned a lot about Indian modernists during this visit. The museum is not very large but it has the work of the most influential artists on display. It's very manageable for a ~2 hour visit. The staff working there were not friendly. I got yelled at taking a picture of the poster at the entrance (not a painting!) and... More

We didn't spend enough time. You could easily spend all day. Lots of ancient history, statues, thrones, jewelry, and art. It's worth paying to take your camera in.

The National Gallery of Modern Art is definitely worth a visit! The Jaipur house in front of it also, very entertaining and original. Plus, there was empty when I visited... If you want a break from the crowd, come here!

The last visit was to see the stainless steel sculptures of Subodh Gupta. Very very interesting about what he has attempted. The Banyan Tree (located in the garden) and the Large Pouring bucket were , I felt the most interesting for me.

i got bored. but maybe that is just me. there is an entire floor dedicated to amrita shergill. it is too much to give so much space to just one artist permanently! like if it were a specific exhibition dedicated to the artist i understand. thats another thing, i'm told the exhibits dont often change, so if you visit once,...

NGMA is a place I never miss when I visit New Delhi. It always features the best artists and curators of India. In my last visit in 2014 I say a show on Subhod Gupta. The show was superb. The gallery boasts of large spaces and well curated displays. This year I feasted my eyes on Mrilalini Mukherjee hemp and... More

Small but focussed insight into the artistic side of india without the hustle and bustle. No great western artists, but lots of history and some great pieces. Don't miss it if your in the area.

If you've exhausted the other historic moment and you've still got time, worth a visit. Nice building and gardens. Good collection of India's modern art. Difficult to get a full overview and orientate yourself. No photo's allowed inside (just wondering who decided on this) ! More security people than visitors and they are following close by.
