  • Quite a good place to explore the old artistic work of Venkatappa - Karnataka's most famous artist. The gallery in particular include his intuitive paintings and finely designed musical instruments. The paintings are worth watching, as they clearly highlights Venkatappa's mastery in art and his skill of imparting minute details from art. The place also does showcase the creative work of many other artists in the form of exhibition. Overall, the place is neatly maintained.
  • Excellent way of showcasing great artist's work. Loads of good exhibitions happen as well. Need better maintenance of the infrastructure by concerned authorities.
  • A very nice place which shows the work of Venkatappa. It also preserves the tools ,brushes and paints used by him.This place also convenes workshops for artists.Situated close to cubbon park and mueseum, this place can also be included in the itinerary.
  • Good place for art lovers, collection is very less. But good enough
  • Beautiful collection of old musical instruments, the hoysala sculptures are amazing.. Just visit when in Bangalore
