Experience Description

This experience begins at the National Museum auditorium where we'll watch a short documentary on the Indus Valley civilization. Then, we will begin our tour by visiting the world famous Harappan gallery which contains over 10,000 artifacts related to the Indus Valley Civilization, including the iconic dancing lady and the priest-king. Our second stop will be the magnificent Maurya and Shunga art gallery, which houses fragments of railings from various ancient Stupas that are carved on with episodes from Buddha's Life. This will be followed by a visit to the Gupta Art Gallery, medieval art gallery and the spectacular coins gallery where I will be telling you about the evolution of the Indian monetary system. After grabbing in some calories at the national museum canteen, we will visit the central Asian gallery, maritime heritage gallery and the Mysore and Tanjore paintings gallery. We will finally bid adieu to our spectacular heritage with a visit to the musical artifacts gallery and the museum gift shop where you can take home replicas of some of the most stunning artifacts from the subcontinent. This tour will generate an even greater respect and love for the Indian past which has eventually shaped our present culture.
