The launch coincided with the occasion of International Museum Day on 18 May.

The app is available on both the Google Playstore and the Apple Appstore. To listen to the narrations, users need to download the app and navigate the content using the numbers mentioned. A web version of the app is also available for those not keen to download the app.

The NGMA app and tours are free for all users.

The museum tours are a rich mix of images, videos and voice. They aim to enhance the viewing experience of the visitors at the museum and also enable one to ‘visit’ the art works virtually. The text is written in an interesting storytelling format with details about the artist, the thought behind the artwork and the techniques used in creating the piece.

Founded in 1954, as the premier museum of modern art of a newly independent nation, the National Gallery Modern Art, New Delhi, houses and showcases masterpieces of the changing art forms of modern India spanning more than 150 years.

The museum has a seminal collection of more than 2000 artists. The line-up includes artists of the stature of Raja Ravi Verma, Abanindranath Tagore, Rabindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore, Nandalal Bose, Jamini Roy, Amrita Sher-Gil, Thomas Daniell, and a few leading international artists.

Paintings, sculptures, photographs and prints currently exhibited at the NGMA can now be viewed on the audio-visual guide app.

The Gallery is in the vicinity of the Government of India’s controversial new Central Vista precinct for which three other iconic buildings of cultural and historical significance – National Museum, National Archives and Indra Gandhi National Centre for Arts – are set to be razed to the ground.
