We went with great expectations. Maybe we expected too much being Delhi!! Many pics were by same artists. After a while we got bored and wound up the trip in a jiffy.

A large complex of buildings near central Delhi, not too expensive to go in, a range of exhibitions none of which were stunning but were interesting. Worth a visit if you have time.

Professional and well prepared museum. Clean, well climated, quiet, professional presentated and lighted. A fascinated collection of exponates. Even the architect of the museum alone would be worth seeing.

The place is huge and for major exhibitions, they use outdoors also (during the winter months), when visitors can spend a leasurly morning aftenoon admiring some stunning art works. Wish they would add a cafe-as per standard practice in all major galleries across the globe and offer some seating to rest. The footfalls do not do justice to this jewel.... More

A fantastic collection, displayed over hundreds of square-feet of real-estate, lavishly spread out over three floors. However, the very dim-set lighting makes for a depressing ambiance. The mood of all art is not necessarily melancholy; but that is how it has been displayed. At it's best, moods could have been segregated and the displays lit-up in that manner. All in... More

I have visited this place many times over the years, and every time I find some improvement. The last time I went was for the centenary exhibition of Amrita Shergill which was for a limited period. It was held in the basement of the NGMA, very well exhibited and at the time we went which was in the morning not... More

What a relaxing visit! We walked through the amazing collection of Indian artists.....sat and talked on the comfy chairs throughout the gallery....and thoroughly relaxed all afternoon. Welcoming, easy to explore, and quiet oasis of culture and art! A nice little shop as well-- prints, postcards, etc. DEFINITELY make a visit.

We debated whether to visit the NGMA and were very glad we did. We really enjoyed the Subodh Gupta exhibit at the Jaipur House as well as the Amrita Sher-Gil exhibit and the permanent collection in the new building. The permanent collection spans a couple of centuries so not all the art is modern. There are some good contemporary works.
