The Crafts Museum located in Pragati Maidan competes with the Matka Peer which offers excellent biryani. But once inside, you are transported to a different world of folk arts and crafts, of traditional handicrafts and artisans, and colours and splendours of our villages. The practice of bringing in the master craftsmen began a few years ago and it provides the... More

The crafts museum is actually under renovation and only the textile gallery is open right now (free of charge). The gallery looks quite old and dusty, and needs to be renovated as well but I guess they need to keep something open. I loved the tribal paintings on the walls of the hall and courtyard, and the few tribal artifacts... More

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.
