  • National Museum in Delhi has many things to offer you if you are interested in history, sculptures, ancient Indian civilization. It showcases many departments like history, science, modern arts, science and latest innovations. You can spend almost half day here. There is small shop inside from there you can purchase replica of some of the antic piece. It will help you understand India from ancient times to modern times.
