We were a little nervous visiting this museum, because of all the bad reviews, but we wanted to find something indoors to escape the heat, so we went anyways. Of course, it turned out that not all of the buildings had A/C... even so, I actually thought the content was quite good.
We skipped the Children's Museum because of all the bad reviews. The bronze gallery was fine, but didn't have much context on anything displayed, which I really like to see (I did like the section up front about how bronze statues are made and restored, though!)
The Natural History museum has a LOT of stuff, though the presentation isn't the greatest- like others said, a little bit like a warehouse. We didn't stay long in there because there was nothing you couldn't see in another museum, and there was no AC.
The National Art Gallery and Contemporary Art Gallery were in the same, gloriously air-conditioned multi-story building. I really enjoyed the National Art Gallery (first floor), which covered crafts, textiles, etc from the area. There was just enough info and just enough things on display.
The Contemporary Art Gallery had a lot of paintings by Indian artists, but they needed to be organized and dated. I hope somebody from the museum is working on that.
