Among the highlights of Levels 4 and 4A... More

Because their definition of "modern" is somewhat expansive, the collection includes Indian miniature paintings and art by colonial-era Western artists, in addition to Indian artists like the Tagores, Jamini Roy, etc. 6 floors, with special exhibitions on the lowest floor.

There were certain artists that i wished i could see more works but otherwise i believe the collections are amazing and adds to a quality tour. i though felt that the whole place could be covered easily in an hour or so as it is not as spread and grand as some other museum i have been too
