The area
Address
Neighborhood: Connaught Place/Janpath
Connaught Place, the heart of New Delhi, is one of the largest commercial, financial and business centers in the Capital. The sprawling horseshoe-shaped circular heritage market is a white dot in the green city, filled with shops, art & handloom emporiums, fashion boutiques, an underground market, cinemas, a range of vintage and new restaurants & bars lined along the inner and Outer Circle. In the midst of all the hustle, CP is great for chilled out evening strolls and people watching, introducing the beauty and rhythm of the city. The ambience gets more colorful as you stroll along Janpath and the Central Cottage Industries Emporium, considered among Delhi’s best shopping areas.
How to get there
  • Patel Chowk • 1 min walk

A small but interesting glimpse into the DMRC’s work
Nov 2019
One of the Delhi Metro’s important stations (also one of its earliest stations to be opened) is the one at Patel Chowk. Here, above the platforms but within the station’s premises, is the Metro Museum, a small two-gallery museum that focuses on the work of the Delhi Metro.

The museum includes a set of models of different trains used by the Metro; it also has a model (along with a detailed description of how it works) of a tunnel-boring machine, as well as a cross-section of a machine. There are full-size mannequins sporting the different uniforms worn by DMRC’s workers, a tool kit used for maintenance, and the different types of helmets worn. There is a history of the DMRC and the phases in which work has been carried out to take the NCR’s Metro network to where it is now.

For me, one of the most interesting bits about the museum was a section on ‘interesting facts about the Delhi Metro’: how many escalators across the network (1,000), the deepest station (Hauz Khas, 30 mt), the highest point (Dhaula Kuan, as tall as a 7-storey building), tallest escalator in India (Janakpuri West), how many times the Metro’s train doors open and close in a day (25 lakh), and so on. This was really fascinating and impressive.

There’s no entrance fee for the Museum, which is basically just a series of exhibits on either side of the passage leading to the exit gates. However, since it is within the area between the exit gates and the platforms, you do need to have a smart card or token in order to view it.

Cool to see how the metro was built
Apr 2019 • Family
The Patel Chowk metro station was near our hotel, so we had to be here anyway to take the metro. It's worth spending some time to look around before you go down to the metro itself.

Very small Museum
Apr 2019 • Friends
You can finish seeing everything in less than half an hour. There are photographs of Delhi Metro since its beginning. The souvenir shop also has limited options.

Nov 2018 • Family
This basically is a collection of some photos covering the history of Delhi metro and a small souvenir shop with very little options to choose from. The items though are cheap. The entry ticket is a token of IRs 10.

The museum does not charge you anything if you visit by metro. But museum is very small and there is no guide available to explain. You can spend maximum 15-20 minutes there.

If you are interested in transit transportation, perhaps this is the only museum in India you can visit. Quite interesting and knowledgeable. Entry for metro passengers is free.
