This place is hub for one who loves art and have soft Cornor for Indian paintings.

One need at least min 3 hours to see entire gallery which is spread in 4 floors in 2 different wings, at first it look like nothing special but as you start seeing you get your eyes mezermising with painting. All most all of renoved artist you will find here and they and this place is blessed with rare art collection too.

7-10 mins of walk for khan market metro station and very close to India gate too.

For Indian 20 rs is fee and please note that it's written photography is not allowed, though when I enquired they said that I can click pictures but no selfie and no to flash.

You may please clarify to avoid such event as security is really tight here, every floor has 2 gaurds along with 1 gentleman in formal uniform to take care.

Before visiting I read TripAdvisor review for AC, well it's quite good I don't find any such problem and you can't carry bags etc, so lockers is there for free where you can put your stuff.

There is also art section which has printed forms of painting like posters, coasters pads etc which you can buy.

You may also go to Jaipur house which has aesthetic design and projection of nature on wall with sound effects.

It's worth going there... specially in this summers as it's fun to be here.

I would recommend going by 230 so you can spend good amount of time there as it's remain open till 6 or 630 and then walk for ice cream to India gate!

The National Gallery Of Modern Art shows a collection over several floors as well as the adjacent Jaipur House.

The collection is predominantly painting; I was most taken by some of the watercolour and tempura works as well as photographs taken during the Ghandi era.

Admission is 20 RS for locals and 500 RS for foreign nationals. You will be requested to check in your bag and sign for a locker.

Please note current opening hours are from 11am. Cafeteria sells snack food only.

National Gallery of Modern Art is an must visit place for an art lover. Older as well as modern art can be found in abundance. Air conditioning can be an issue for few. Nearest metro station is Khan Market.

For me it is one of the mandatory places to visit in Delhi. In India there is only one similar Museum - in Mumbai, having the status of branch of the Delhi one. However, it seems to open soon in Bangalore next branch, but not yet. If all else – by the way, in principle, almost all surrounding neighborhood - looks already written and turned page in the history and culture of India, but here in this building, built as the residence of the Raja of Jaipur, are being written the absolutely new pages. I mean contemporary art exhibitions for which the museum among other things is designed. Although there are permanent exhibitions – as improvised (like sculptures in front of the entrance) and thematically verified. There is also a miniature painting, as elsewhere in India, though still with an emphasis on Mysore, Calcutta and Tanjoor art school, but far more important from my point of view is, for example, the Department of "Academic realism", presenting Indian art from the unexpected for the Europeans side. Or the exhibits that give an idea about the school of "Bengal Renaissance". Separate exposition is dedicated to the works of European artists, then to the works of Rabindranath Tagore and members of his family. And this is only a small part among the nearly twenty thousand units of storage.
