Very sparse. There's much more to Indian crafts than what was showcased. The place is more for textiles than crafts. Needs to be made more engaging and interactive to bring the place alive.

This place is must visit if someone wants to see unique and diverse culture of India thru crafts. There is no better place to see skills of some the artisans which are difficult to find elsewhere.

At this place u can find vibrant craft items on sale as well as the skillful artisan are making the items live. Delhities are not much aware of this place adjacent to Pragati Maidan, yet it has its own charm. A miniature rural/historical India could be seen here.

Its a must see place place. It houses a very good collection of the crafts of India. Could be made a bit more interesting and interactive though. The staff seems very inattentive. The kids would enjoy the replicas of the houses found in different states. The craft shops are quite interesting. "Lota" the shop of the museum is a delight.

Crafts Museum is a unique place for an art lover located in Pragati Maidan opposite Purana Qila on Mathura Road, Delhi. It is a peaceful place away from the hustle-bustle of busy Delhi. The Crafts Museum has a village kind of setting with open galleries with wonderful display of interesting exhibits of wooden carvings, terracotta sculptures, village houses and huts... More
