Exploring the folk art in Crafts Museum

Established in 1956, Crafts Museum owns roughly 20,000 artefacts and showcases puppets, wooden and bronze sculptures, paper mache and everyday objects. At present, there’s just one gallery open to public due to construction of the new wings of the Hastakala Institute. It’s truly magnificent, a tranquil oasis in a fast paced city like Delhi. In this walk through the museum, join us to view a short documentary on the museum, take a walk through the open air galleries for a live interaction with skilled craftsmen and purchase collectibles from all over India.
