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 :-)

The Crafts Museum offers lots to see but you need to navigate a maze to see it all. Textiles, furnishings, home goods, and other odds and ends are all on display. The indoor halls lack A/C so keep that in mind if you are hoping for an escape from the heat.

It was a visit planned by my college and I suppose anything with friends makes the place even more exciting. The art gallery is a one time watch having people's efforts reflected in the price tags. The huge sculptures made of clay and mud were found to be dusty. The Kuchipudi dance performance was truly admirable. And of course you... More

This one place is dreamy. Truly dreamy. You enter it and walk slowly into the arms of clay and forget what you intended out of this visit. Just the beauty of sculpture art, human finesse, precision, and silence takes over your mind and body. You will see painters painting, sculptures sculpting, and many others enjoying an art form at their... More

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
