Do visit the jewellery gallery in the National Museum- one of a kind in India. Has some fabulous pieces. Wish they made the gallery more interactive. However, the objects were beautiful and made up for everything!

Yes. I had no problems with it at all. To protect the items exposed, flashes are not aloud as expected. It is a very nice museum. Enjoy it!
