  • The art gallery is pretty good. You can get paintings from the early 18th century 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 the like button if it is helpful.
  • One of the best things to do in Delhi, if you are into arts and culture. But be prepared as this gallery can take around 3 hours to be seen properly. Photography is not allowed inside unless you are sneaky Tom.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!!!

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
