  • The art gallery is pretty good. You can get paintings from the early 90'S till today. It also has a hall for sculptures. There is ticket. A nice place to get inspiration for Art. But photography is not allowed. Click like if it is helpful.
  • One of the few world-class galleries in Delhi. If you are an art lover, it is really the only proper art museum in town. Definitely worth visiting to see the work of Sher-Gil if nothing else.
  • Very good collection of modern Indian art. With different styles and ideas. Painting like contemporary and modern, graphic and photography, sculpture. I was in time when it has Korean artist exhibition. The ideas and style of painting is blow your mind, coz craftsmanship is so high quality!!!
  • A wonderful place. Paintings from Tagore clan to this day are on display..sculptures are plentiful... lovely place ...full of colours, brush strocks, lines, ideas. A great repository of our culture on canvass and stone.
  • Amazing place with soo many master pieces. Each floor is dedicated to a genre of art. It is a marvelous place. This place is quite nice for budding artist who seek inspiration.
