  • Quite an exciting place. Heaven for antique lovers. Entry fee for indians is Rs 20. For foreigners its Rs 500. Quite drastic. Anyway. The place is big enough. Its well maintained and clean. There are different sections. The section for aquatic life is a must see. One section remained closed. I have heard it to be remained closed for a long time. Kids will find the place exciting. Especially the section where a real mummy is lying peacefully in display. Hope you guys will have a jolly time with you family, full of excitement.

  • Recently Renovated ! The Place has upped it's game. The maintenance is getting there. Full marks to the present authority for running the show and running it as smooth as possible. Full marks to the mask gallery on the third floor. And mostly people should stop taking selfies with the mummy ! Leave that dead person alone. Jokes apart the place is not to be missed. This is a heritage monument dating back to 1814 the oldest one in India ! And one of the oldest ones in this continent. Art/Architecture/Artifacts/Fossils/ name it they have some thing for every one. I just love walking through its long corridors. One of the best preserved architectural specimens from The Raj.

  • Being a history lover, I keep visiting the Museums. This is one of the best maintained museums in India. This is located near to India Gate and nearest Metro is Central Secretariat. One can reach here auto and buses. (please check the transport details). Tickets price is not high and that includes the still photography too. Though, they do not allow tripods. One can get assistance by digital guide or with limited options, volunteers too. There is sales counter on ground floor for replicas and printed materials. These are good choice for souvenir or artifact collections. Price is reasonable. The museum is spread in three floors and are arranged in a systematic way. Sculptors, paintings, artifacts from all ages can be seen in their respective galleries. I would recommend to carry a gallery map (can be collected at entrance hall) that will help to visit the desired gallery. There is a library adjacent to the entrance hall. I hope researches and scholars can find a great help with materials. I do not have much details on accessing/using the library. If you are a history lover and want to know more about the past of India-prehistoric, historic or culture, must visit this place once.

  • Wonderful wonderful place. One of the best museum in world. Very large numbers of articles. Difficult to cover in one day. It has attraction for all ages. Very rare Mummy is there.

  • Amazing place. It will take whole day. But truly a fantastic place for everyone of age 8 to 80. Few benches are available for resting. So, sometimes one will be too tired to walk. Visit once & take your children too. They will enjoy it :)
