Crafts Museum, New Delhi

3.7
Inspect the collection at Crafts Museum, a repository dedicated to all living crafts and skills still in common use. Designed by renowned architect Charles Correa, the museum building represents traditional rural architecture with internal courtyards, tiled roofs, arches, and carved doors. Peruse some 3,000 objects displayed in galleries, which represents just a small portion of the total collection of 33,000 pieces. Besides examining the exhibitions, you can also visit the library, audio-visual room, and take part in the education program. If you tire from all the wandering, head to the cafe to rest and refresh yourself with a variety of regional delicacies.
