Good collection on the development of the Sanskrit alphabets, musical instruments. The best part is the exhibitors on the Harappa Valley Civilization. Although small for a National Museum it’s worth the visit. Cafeteria does not work reliably however, so take your own sandwich.

It is a travesty to ignore this museum, both for Indians and for those visiting India. The content of this place is solid, with marvelous, awe-inspiring sculptures from every major era of Indian history, starting from the Harappa, Mohenjo Daro civilizations to modern day exhibits,...More
