It has got enormous space to provide you the feel of a museum as well as that of a village. The presence of craftspeople from across the Indian states is a great plus, you get to see how they work and prepare beautiful antiques

A fascinating display in many galleries covering sculpture, folk painting and an outstanding collection of textiles hidden away in the back galleries past the vendors. Be certain to ask direction for access downstairs for these wonderful saris and other historical textiles on exhibit.

I personally found this attraction a tad disappointing contrary to some of the reviews on-line. I also hate the way that the on-site vendors ambush you and then go for the hard sell

Good collection of old crafts, people of all age groups will like the place. Indoor crafts are a must see. If you are lucky then you might see some small mela happening where you will be able to buy first hand from the craftsmen/ women.
