museum closures during diwali?

We were planning to be in New Delhi, Varanasi and Agra during Diwali this coming year. Will the museums be closed ? We were looking forward to being there during the festival but now we're having second thoughts.

Yes, plan that they will be closed. Diwali is a HUGE celebration, but it is largely a celebration among family at home. It is not celebrated with public festivals. Virtually all businesses are closed (except the airports and hotels).
