Delhi National Museum

Recommended
Statues and jewellery bring you into closer contact with the distant civilisations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro (2500-1500 BC), while terracotta introduces you to the Maurya and Shunga periods (3C and 2C BC), as well as the Gupta dynasty (4C-6C AD). The miniatures, notably those from the Kangra School, are dazzling. Tribal costumes and musical instruments are displayed on the first and second floors.
