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.

Really interesting museum of traditional crafts, housed in multiple buildings and with an outdoor area as well. If only it wasn’t 110 today. The main display has a cooling system and was small but very interesting. The textiles are separate in a run-down setting and...More

Well it's the biggest irony that inspite of being centrally located right next to Zoo and Pragati Maidan Gate no. 1 this place has very few visitors. It seems people don't know about it. Bureaucrats, ambassadors, art lovers and their families and friends are the...More
