The National Museum, {CATEGORY}

Okay, so this museum boasts 150,000 pieces covering some 5 millennia, but it is frustratingly hard for the layperson to traverse these hallowed corridors, some of which lie boarded up and empty, and all of which have displays with little or no information. That said, you can still find gems, like the 12th-century statue of the cosmic dance of Lord Shiva (South Indian bronzes), which is almost an Indian archetype, and the truly wonderful collection of miniature paintings - this is one area (second floor) where you could easily spend a few hours. And if you have any interest in history, the sheer antiquity of many of the pieces will amaze you - here lies the country's finest collection of Indus Valley relics (ca. 2700 B.C)., as well as those garnered from central Asia's "Silk Route", but again very little is displayed in an accessible manner. It takes time and effort (and preferably a guide) to appreciate the wealth of history that lies throughout the 30-odd galleries spread over three floors. If your visit coincides with one of the free tours offered, join in for a bit.
