  • Guide price of the headset in the charge. Japan, too. Sometimes it is supposed to be explained in each number, but the number is not found (? ) Is a gem worth looking at is!

  • All exhibits are also great for short. Jewelry, Buddha, Hindu, art is not to be missed. Miniatures and even poetic. But hang in there (laughs) the worst way! In India (laughs) display method of appeal is 3 times!

  • They say a picture is referred to as the national get colorless!! I think that does more than the National Museum of Cambodia in Phnom Penh. Korean service, but a bit stale. The history and religion of India in untold stories is not animated idea. (very painful)

  • I had a blast at this museum . It's pretty cool place to go with family and kids , saw a lot of art students making portraits , parking was a little confusing , you have to go though the security even for parking . There is space for around 20-40 cars. Pros - Cleanliness is kept in mind , very neat and tidy . Security is excellent. Audio guides are available in multiple languages. Museum store is good Drinking water is available and toilets are hygienic. Cons -Parking area hard to spot from road , it's actually through the small gate . Technology could be used like 3d tours VR etc Overall it's a nice place to visit.
  • Good place to have a look once. Better for people who are found of history. Otherwise it's boring. Behind the museum you have canteen facility provides good food and also at the basement will open a bit late when compared over the outside one. You can also shop in the museum. Has got clean wash rooms. Museum also Provides audio tapes , guides you all the way around.
  • I love this place I can spend hours n hours here alone... I have visited many times but still I feel many of the objective are yet to discover... If someone loves history n heritage then you must visit... Equipped with morden practice and has all the basic facilities. 5 out of 5
  • Learn more about India by visiting this place. Spend four hours in this four storied building and learn history of more than 4000 years. Amazing place. The beauty of this place can not be explained in words. The collection is extremely magnificent and rich and can you believe, the entrance is only for Rs 20. No where in the world will you be able to see real treasure in front of you with your eyes at such a price. Priceless memories. Thank you Government of India.
  • This is the place where you can find the biggest treasure of the world. It has all the things that you watch on TV, read in books and magazines. They all are there in front of your eyes. It is a must place visit for you. And kids specially. There are things from the time when civilization started in India. It is a walk down the history lane.

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.
