We visited there for a change of scene as we have seen plenty of temples, monuments and ruins in the past month. We were glad we did something different. First, it has a very green and well maintained garden features some interesting sculptures. Second, the new wing (which houses the majority of work) is very modern and spacious, fully air-conditioned,... More

Cool place to visit with your art lover friends. I insist on the quality of your friends and company. You will like this place more with like minded and knowledgeable friends otherwise go alone. Then you will enjoy better.

Thoroughly enjoyed my trip to the National Gallery of Modern Art. While there aren't exactly Picasso's or Van Gogh's on display, I learnt a great deal about ho Art in India over the last couple centuries developed from earlier forms of miniature portraits to more symbolistic, contemporary art. To my surprise, it was even free for non-Nationals!

This is a must do for anyone who appreciates art. We started at the basement level, which had an exhibit titled 'Remembering Amrita Sher-gil'. This was beautiful, filled with wonderful portraits, nudes and self-portraits which were so filled with sensuality and emotion that it was hard to believe Amrita was only 28 when she died. There were 4 more levels... More

We went to NGMA last weekend to view the retrospective exhibition of Architect Prof BV Doshi. Additionally, there was the complete collection of Amrita Shergil on display as well. This was superb.

Great spot. Take your time there. 6 floors of pristine art. Be ready to get floored by artists across time. Opposite the main hall is the Jaipur House-print/media collection. Entry fee for Indians-rupee 10. For other visitors and nris: ~100 to 150 usd. You can safely put all your bags and belongings in lockers at the main hall's security post.... More

It is an amazing museum with an even more amazing collection of Modern and contemporary art. One can spend countless hours browsing the beautiful paintings. Definitely worth a visit.

The gallery has an amazing collection of paintings and art pieces. Paintings dating back to the British era will leave you awe struck. 200 year old paintings have been maintained in their pristine condition. Hats off to the curator of the gallery. The art works displayed out in the open are amazing.
