National Museum Tours

29 reviews

Thousands of historic artifacts covering 5,000 years of both Indian and world history are on display in the spacious galleries of the excellent National Museum. Exhibits include rare relics from the Harappan Civilization, Central Asian antiquities (including silk paintings from the 1st century AD), Indian textiles, tribal masks, sculptures, musical instruments, old coins (Portuguese, Dutch and Danish), miniature paintings and weapons (including a battle-axe from 1739 AD). It is the largest museum in India so give yourself at least a few hours - preferably a half-day - to explore this museum.

As well as the displays over 3 floors, the museum has an active conservation and education program. Since it came into existence in 1983 the National Museum Institute of Art, Conservation and Museology has become a university and now trains people to preserve the rich heritage of India.
