    If you are a first timer, read this fully for a satisfying experience.

    Location :Located near to Rajiv chowk metro station.
    But the entrance is comparatively small and for first timers its not so easy to notice.

    Parking : couldn't find any dedicated parking nearby. But their website mentions that nearest parking is 2min away. we went through a cab.

    Tickets: the best way to buy tickets is through klook app. As I got two tickets for 710rs total. While the official site says the online ticket is 650 and direct ticket rate is 900.
    You can also check and buy the tickets through many other online sites. Kids below three years can visit free. And there is a child ticket for kids above 3 years.

    And I had lot of doubts regarding VIP tickets but Noone shared about it extensively. And it's a waste of money in my view if you are visiting on a week day or weekend morning.

    Customer service - have mixed feedback about them.
    The front desk people - not so concerned about ViP tickets or explaining about the benefits. They just check the online tickets and let you in.
    There was no disturbance or irritating supervisors once you are inside. Free to roam here and there and click as many pics as possible.
    Only when we entered the bollywood actors area in the final area of museum, we found an official photographer, who clicks pics for us. And even they don't tell any specifics and cost of photographs.
    To our utter disappointment, after the complete tour, we came to know that, we can take as many pics using the photographer and get them all as soft copy in a pen drive for around 500rs ( great deal but never disclosed).. Since we had less time, we didn't take a second round to get professional pics.
    The sales person in the wax hand molding areas was really helpful. We need to pay around 800 for a wax hand mould with filling. Must buy here. (though it's pricey).

    Wax statues - No complaints about the statues. They are fairly good and close to real life persons. My personal Favourites were Sachin, salman khan, mary Kom, will Smith. There were some very poorlu made statues too like sunny Leone.
    Some statues have nice photo ops like Salman khan on cycle rickshaw, Tom cruise on a bike.

    And the bollywood hollywood sections had very less light to capture good pics.

    Points to note:
    1. Spend minimum 2 hours to have fun wit your family clicking individual pics.
    2. Use the official photographer as much as possible. As u can get the soft copies at a much cheaper rate. Physical copies cost too much.
    3. Outside food and drinks will be kept in locker. You can collect while returning back.
    4. Go early in morning to enjoy with out crowd.

    Set up in 1949, this National Museum houses over 2 million artefacts from the ancient civilisation. On display are the Relics of the Buddha (5th to 4th BCE), unearthed in Uttar Pradesh. Outstanding specimens of Buddhist Art, illustrated through almost 100 exhibits in stone, bronze, terracotta, stucco and painted scrolls. The artefacts represent Buddhist arts of Nepal, Tibet, Central Asia, Myanmar, Java and Cambodia. Many of these relics stimulate a sense of devotion, dedication and love for humanity.

    I am eternally blessed to have personally seen the beautiful Buddhist Art in New Delhi. I remain deeply humbled by the teachings of Gautama Buddha.

    Spent a few hours at the Crafts Museum. We were glad we went and enjoyed in particular the textiles exhibits, which were curated well with great English language signage and some interactive technology. Handicrafts displays were great too, showcasing some of the amazing diversity of India. We also appreciated the short movie on women weavers. The chariot is really something too. We wanted to like the outdoor exhibits more - the positive was the peaceful setting and lovely trees. The negative was the structures were poorly signed, inaccessible, and kind of arranged randomly among construction piles and debris areas. They also have craftspeople making and selling some items, but the actual museum shop was apparently closed (indefinitely?). Cafe Lota looked promising, but the 20-minute wait stretched to over an hour so we gave up. Maybe best to put your name in before viewing the museum.

    The is undoubtedly a place where all art lovers should go. Especially we should our kids there to make them aware of our art heritage. Though I wish the collection was a bit more vast

    On many of the Sulabh’s offices and buildings in a row on the same side, it is very difficult to find it. It is not a separate building but in the premises of an office building.Closed on Sunday and without any fee it is surely unique. In one medium size hall there are so many different types of Toilets, some miniature o ones to one two storied one.You will also see variety of posters with facts about toilets around the world.

    I was up early and no where to go, so decided to stroll through the astronomical devices. The guard was helpful. I knew nothing when I arrived and learned a few things too. Enjoy!

    The Museum and Planetarium are two separate entities.But recommend to first visit the Planetarium, because it is generally crowded and show timimg for Hindi & English is also different. Addition to this the ticket counter for space show only opens sometimes before the show starts. If you don’t want to enjoy the show, which is normally for 30 minutes, then you can enter free.The entry ticket for the sky show is Rs.50/- for child and Rs.80/- for adult.
    After enjoying the show you have to walk on the directions given to the Teen Murti Bhawan which is entry free. There you see different rooms used by Nehru,his jacket, numerous letters and other exhibits.The museum also has a souvenir shop. The entry gate of both Nehru Planetarium & Teen Murti Bhavan is separate so that you can enter on any side and exit on any side with a connecting road in between.

    The Rashtrapati Bhavan Museum has been conceptualised with great beauty. It presents before you the Power of India, from the British era to current Democratic Indian. An unique opportunity to see important items, dresses, pen, furniture, gifts and documents associated with all the Presidents of India. You will be amazed to see the old car of the President of India, the replica of his Buggy, the luxuries of Rashtrapati Bhavan. It is a must visit for Students.

    This is a small Haveli in a small crowded street of Chandni Chowk In Old Delhi. It was here that Mirza Ghalib spent last nine years of his life. The visit takes you back 150 years in history and brings in mind the images when Ghalib would have lived here. Sheer delight. The place has now been converted into a small museum of sort where things related to Ghalib are kept and his poetry is written. I had visited Chandni Chowk so many times earlier but was not aware of this historical jewel in one of the alleys. Quite clean and calm, must visit if you love Ghalib and his poetry.
