The visit to the museum gave us an idea of the splendour of the court of the time of the great Mughals from the specimens of decorative materials—carpets, rugs, chandeliers, shades and lamps, etc. The visit too gave us a first hand knowledge of animals for their stuffed specimens. They had all kinds of art from different time periods from different parts of the world.
The other day I visited the museum along with some of my friends.
It is housed in a grand building surrounded by beautiful parks.
They had a special exhibition on Indian art and a gallery of photos about the history of America.
At first I went to Asian art section, which had some stuff from Japan and a sculptures related to Buddhism.
Some photos seem to do their job; they did capture the essence of the time. ” Another room featured only landscapes and cityscapes.
I prefer landscapes/cityscapes to be without people. I also prefer photos I take when I go on vacation to be without people, drives my mom nuts.
It was quite interesting to see the great contrast between the modem weapons and those used in the past.
At the farthest end of the building we saw a collection of stuffed mammals animal and reprifes.
In another section theft was an art gallery containing beautiful pictures and portraits depicting the scenes of Mughal life.
In still another section we were surprised to see the ornaments worn by the women during different periods of Indian history, coins of various kings and specimens of metalware, carpets and agricultural implements used at different times.
