We especially enjoyed seeing the fabric department where a man... More

This is an excellent place to visit. Quite an expanse with open air exhibits. However, the internal exhibits and exhibition were outstanding. The main problem is that it is not publicised enough.

A part of it has been recently renovated and it looks even better. A place which is not very big but has beautiful aura, and where you can watch many painters practicing their skills. My little one was excited to see terracotta animals and beautifully painted huts. They also have a restaurant which has traditionally Indian recipes but not commonly... More

We enjoyed a nice walk around the exhibits, including craft stalls. The shop is good value and dealing directly with the makers of the goods. The cafe is wonderful with super food and non alcoholic drinks. Enjoy :-)

This complex is great for anyone who enjoys crafts/arts. This is one of my favorite places in Delhi. The place is a peaceful getaway from the Delhi hustle. I really liked the cafe and the food was very good. Besides the Museum there is a courtyard with a village kind of feeling where crafty goods are for sale. There was... More
