The Sanskriti Museum is set in the midst of beautifully landscaped gardens in the outskirts of Delhi. The museum comprises of two parts, Sanksriti Museum of Indian Terracotta and Sanskriti Museum of Everyday Art.

Inspired by the thought of earthen absorption and creativity, the Museum of Terracotta was created by Sanskriti, which houses objects made by some of the finest craftspersons who have visited the Kendra from different parts of India. Using their distinctive traditions and techniques, they created objects that are displayed in the museum and elsewhere within the complex.

The museum has a well-documented display of India's terracotta tradition. Complementing the museum are residential facilities and working space for craftspersons where one can sometimes get an opportunity to see them at work.

Sanskriti Museum of Everyday Art displays objects like jars, combs, mirrors, toys and kitchen utensils. All the objects are functional and exquisitely crafted. The museum was the result of the collections of O.P. Jain.

The Sanskriti Kendra is the centre for interaction between artists and scholars.
