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.

The highlight of my trip to Delhi. Well maintained buildings, the contemporary art collection included an amazing permanent exhibition for Amrita Sher Gil, an Indian artist that I did not know. Having spent so long admiring her work I had little time to explore the other buildings. Something to do when I visit again. The printing history building was also... More

After the old fashion, dirty National Museum, this place was a releave. Its collection is presented in a modern way. It is so good to walk around there. All facilities for people in a wheelchair, older people. I saw two amazing exhibitions: Amirta Sher-Gil / Architect Dorshi

We loved the National Gallery of Modern Art. Extensive collection and we could have spent a couple of days there. Excellent examples of contemporary Indian art and curated well to show each artist's oeuvre. Don't think of getting a coffee or eating there - the cafe is a staff canteen with a bucket of rice, one of dhal and a... More

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
