- Easy to locate on Google Maps. Parking is easily available outside. - Spent two hours there, using the audio guide. Was able to cover about 60-70% of the museum. - Tickets are extremely cheap. An audio guide costs Rs. 150. It was very informative without being boring or preachy; would highly recommend it. - The ground floor took the... More

The National Museum is a must visit for every tourist in Delhi. The facilities are excellent including the audio tour which matches the best in the world. The artefacts are well presented and documented and give a glimpse of cultural and social development during India's long history. My wife and I had a wonderful time and would like to visit... More

Our visit to the museum was great! We arrived, quickly went to security and were off to the exhibits. One or two are in the middle of the much needed renovations, so a few areas are closed. The audio tour was fantastic. It is the only way to really receive the depth of the museum visit. There are signs in... More

This is one of the worth visiting places in New Delhi. The place is not boring at all, which majority of people may think about a museum. This museum hosts interesting collection of artefacts from Indian History. A person who is curious for knowledge, would enjoy even more as the presentation of artefacts is really interesting. Overall, this museum provides... More

Today I had best experience of being in a musueum and in 90 minutes I could see the best 25 artefacts and am determined that I would spend hours and hours in seeing the splendid collection this museum has. When one hears that this museum has more than 3,00,000 items and it takes lots of time to see even the... More

The National Museum. It is a very nice selection of Indian history with some beautiful pieces. I just wish that money could be spent on displays and maintenance. It is a shame to let a Museum go down like this. The floor was being cleaned constantly, Wow. Some of the display cases had so much dirt it was shameful! Clean... More

Five millennia of Indian history can be explored at the National Museum with its collection of more than 200,000 pieces of Indian art. As our time was limited we grabbed the very helpful "The Museum in 90 minutes" booklet in the information area and with the audio guide visited the major highlights of the museum. The ground floor has marvelous... More
