National Museum - Review

The National Museum in Delhi is a very important History Museum in India. This museum, founded sometime in 1959 houses a varied collection. Several collections ranging from archeological and anthropological artifacts to paintings and decorative arts are on display here.

The museum is huge so a day may not be enough to see everything but don’t miss out on the highlights of each field. The ground floor has the library the auditorium and most prominently collections from the Harappa civilization as well as Buddhist art. The first floor has several different collections of paintings and manuscripts. The second floor is perhaps the most engaging with tribal art work, clothes from different eras, copper plates and weapons and armor all put on display. The museum is a great way to learn more about several aspects of India so be sure to put it on your must see list if that interests you.

  • I visited this place in Oct 2016 . It's near the india gate . You have to reach central Secretariat metro if you coming from metro. Amazing Awesome it's most interesting place for me . I love my nation and love it's history. If you are scholar you can't see this place in one go. Before visited this place I read history in ncert text and never seen thing found in excavation with my naked eyes. But here you see all these things.

  • National Museum is one of India's best museums. It has centuries old articles including Hadappa civilization, Gupta Dynasty, Maurya Dynasty, Kushan Dynasty and many more... A wonderful place for history lovers and who wants to see the glorious Indian past. You can take your kids along with and they will have a great time.

Overall, a must see place for anyone and everyone who visits Delhi...

  • Great collection of artifacts can be found here. Architecture of the museum is also great. Officials don't allow bags inside, so they have a cloak room in the campus. All the ancient collection of artifacts and old jwellery as well as coins and other sclupture can be found here. Some paintings are just amazing.
