    I visited National Museum after a couple of day of travelling all around the city in the middle of the hot weather. So, it was relaxing to reach the building which has air conditioning as well as proper bathrooms and chairs. It was also nice to take the 90-minute trip to know the complete museum. I took this trip because I needed to keep on roaming around Delhi. 90 minutes is enough time to get to know the amazing collection.
