Bangalore is the third and newest outpost of the pan-Indian National Gallery of Modern Art. Foundation for its construction was laid back in 2001 and it was finally made open to the public in early 2012. Those who have visited the NGMA in Delhi and Mumbai will find that NGMA Bangalore continues its mission to help people look at modern works of Indian art with greater joy, understanding, and knowledge.
NGMA Bangalore resides in Manikyavelu Mansion, an historic heritage building that was once the property of the Mysore royal family. Spread over a large expanse of quiet green gardens that are dotted with sculptures, the mansion was transformed into the hub of art activities and cultural exchange that it is today. There's a cafeteria, an open-air theater, and a nice little museum shop as well.
The gallery is closed on Mondays but open from 10am - 5pm every other day of the week.
