Very well done museum with both outdoor displays of living quarters from the various Indian states as well as indoor rooms with textiles and other objects. There is also an outdoor market with handicrafts also from assorted areas in India. There is an exhibition area near the vendors where we caught a performance of some very flexible kids doing traditional dances and acrobatics. They were temple dances and as such were danced by boys dressed as and made up as females since women are not permitted to be temple dancers apparently.

Spent a few hours at the Crafts Museum. We were glad we went and enjoyed in particular the textiles exhibits, which were curated well with great English language signage and some interactive technology. Handicrafts displays were great too, showcasing some of the amazing diversity of India. We also appreciated the short movie on women weavers. The chariot is really something too. We wanted to like the outdoor exhibits more - the positive was the peaceful setting and lovely trees. The negative was the structures were poorly signed, inaccessible, and kind of arranged randomly among construction piles and debris areas. They also have craftspeople making and selling some items, but the actual museum shop was apparently closed (indefinitely?). Cafe Lota looked promising, but the 20-minute wait stretched to over an hour so we gave up. Maybe best to put your name in before viewing the museum.

The crafts museum is divided into two parts, the museum section, which contains an assortment of decorative arts from antiquity, and the gallery of local artists. I was fortunate to come on a day where the museum featured female artists from various Villages across India. Speaking with the women about their art and their inspirations imbued a spirit into their crafts that i could not achieve otherwise. I was happy to see the indian government setting aside a peaceful place for these women to share their crafts.

Please visit this place when you are in delhi to support the artists. This museum doesn’t receive enough traffic and they will be grateful to host you.

This is well worth a visit. Plan on 2-3 hours. There is an outdoor village area as well as indoor galleries. All well organized and the audio tour in English was very helpful. Displays include representative works from many regions and groups. My favorite section was Textiles, which explains and traces the history of weaving, known to exist since 2500 B.C.E. The items on display are truly stunning. The special exhibit was Brocade, just gorgeous! Allow an additional hour for lunch at Cafe Lota. Outstanding food.

It's quite a large area with many galleries. For an extra payment, there are headphone based audio guides. An eatery and shopping store are located near the entrance.
The textile section is particularly interesting, that's categories into states and regions. DSLR photography is chargeable.

Nice audio tour. Not overwhelming. Good place to buy gifts from local artisans. Only downside is the vendors are always trying to sell you more (which is normal in India) which makes just browsing difficult.

I have spent hours at Crafts Museum, if you love craft, if you want a day in Delhi but out, you go here. You sit with artisans, hear stories, buy lovely stuff at better prices than most other places. I love this one.

Interesting galleries. But I feel that the place has a lot more potential and space, they could do much more. The exhibition that was on when I visited was Vayaan, very well curated. It would be lovely to see many more like that.

Loved how the museum was curated. It was easier to find our way around the galleries and the exhibitions. Esp, loved the textile gallery and exhibition on Brocade while the Craft Village reminded me of something I wanted to back home.
