Fifteen kilometres east of Bhuj, this superb NGO-run museum is an absolute must for anyone interested in the centuries-old crafts practised by Kachchh artisans. One of three planned galleries is now open, showcasing the 42 different embroidery styles of the Ahir, Maghwal, Rabari and others. The pieces on display are breathtaking and the multimedia features let you learn about individual exhibits in greater depth. The gift shop sells embroidered items and books on Kachchh embroidery.

There are plans to eventually document the full range of Kachchh creativity, from metalwork and leatherwork to silverwork and rogan printing.
